Deep in thought, and only aware of the surroundings to the point of being safe in transit, I bring my car to a complete stop and watch as these two ducks, who i assume are taking a stroll on their morning date, waddle across the road in front of me.
The female duck stops in front of my car and looks straight at me as the male duck continues to waddle forward on his stroll. The male duck makes it to the curb while the female duck remains immobile, still staring at me.
Finally the male duck turns around and quickly waddles halfway back to the female duck, quacking all the way. That finally breaks her stare and she quickly waddles to catch up to her partner.
Both are possibilities, and both possibilities have something for me to take a look at! The she duck took a stand, literally, until i was present enough in the moment to get it and connect, and for that i am grateful!
