I've never really thought about the term 'sitting duck'...until I saw it in action the other day! It was a gorgeous sunny morning. I was in the kitchen and could hear the ducks in the pond quacking away. After a few minutes I realized they were realllllly bothered about something. I took a peek out of the sliding door just in time to see a huge bird swoop down and try and grab a 'sitting duck' out of the pond. I couldn't believe it! I went out on the deck, camera in hand and watched for awhile. I first I thought it was an eagle. But..once I put my pics on the computer I realized it was a hawk. At least I think it is. Anyway..this bird sat on the fence waiting and waiting, watching and waiting. In the not so far distance I could hear it's baby crying away in a nest somewhere. This hawk was so patient. After what seemed like forever, he/she rocketed off the fence and took another dive at the ducks. No catch. I got up to try and get some action shots but I scared it away. I noticed later in the day it was back...but the ducks hadn't learned..they were still, well, sitting ducks.
