duck, duck, run!

Indian Runner ducks are awesome. Unlike most other ducks, they stand straight up like a shot. So, rather than waddling like Daffy, they run. (Makes sense with the name, yes?)

They like swimming. And they like running around in grassy meadows even better. In the vein of Mr. Miyagi, they’re even adept at catching flies.

Watching the Indian Runners makes me smile. There’s a sense of being tall and proud and going for whatever they want. There’s a sense of wonder at a duck that runs! Perhaps a bit anthropomorphizing of me, but still a great lesson.

Stand tall and run for what you want. Better yet, surprise everyone with what you can do!
