Our Little Sunshine
We have called this film scene: “Dejeuner sur l'herbe” after the painting of E. Manet because we were also sitting on the green and it was such a beautiful sunshiny day. This was in the Summer of 1999 and then she was four years old.
Can you hear her talking to me?
That's not the sound of an “ordinary” duck. People who have pet ducks probably can hear the difference, she developed her own language.
Maybe this needs some explanation for the “new visitors” of my blog.
I found Pipke in an abandoned nest at the moment that she hatched.
She imprinted me as her kind. We tried to introduce her to her family but without success. She never wanted the companion of other ducks, we were her family. Of course, it was not an ideal situation, but we were always there for her.
If I hadn't rescued her in this first moment of her life -- she would never have lived -- now she “has lived” and she was a very lucky duck!
Enjoy the sunshine!
Thanks for your visit!
