The Squabble

It was short and somewhat mild but was sure was a squabble nonetheless. It occurred on a sunny Sunday morning along a quiet stretch of the creek. A female Goldeneye had found just the right rock to gather a little sun and enjoy the day.

Then that cute looking Ringneck https://naturehasnoboss.com/2017/02/03/female-ringnecked-duck/
swam into the frame and headed straight for the rock upon which our Goldenye stood.

The squabble was on.

And with nothing more than that piercing glance only a Ringneck can give the rock was taken over.

Looking smug in her success this girl only stood for a minute the slid back in the water and swam happily away with her adversaries of the day.

And although it ended peacefully I will alway remember this as the squabble.

  1. Fantastic personalities. BTW, I love your blog’s new look. ‘Lovecraft’ seems appropriate a theme name for NatureHasNoBoss if ever there was one! Keep it up, Mike. (See? I come to the blog occasionally, no just ‘like’ from my Reader.)
