I won't be getting to Prospect Park today to enjoy the inch or so of rain predicted. (I'm actually headed for the Cloisters, more on that later.)
So in honor of the weather, here are a lady and gentleman mallard by Nicole, the photographer I met in the park this week. I felt a bit guilty for dissing mallards; they may be ubiquitous, but they are lovely.
When it's pouring rain and people complain
And things aren't worth a shucks,
Don't you yell, just say, "Well—
Lovely weather for ducks!"
