Wrong Direction, Guys!

Walking along Bloor St, I spotted these 2 mallards heading north over the buildings. Considering the horribly cold weather we have been having this week, if I had wings I'd being going south!

At least the mallards are smart enough not to fly alone.

Too early to head north, but that is a fine looking mural. Good eye.

:-) How I wish I had ducks flying on murals in Versailles, whichever way...

Thanks for your lovely comment today!

Come on down! Mallards and snowbirds welcome here in Florida.

(That's a lovely mural).

They've loss their compass. At least they are not flying into that brick wall.

A beautiful mural.

Well, it's summer in that mural, so from their point of view, flying north is the right... wait a minute, it's a mural, not real mallards!

Come on down, RedPat. We have had a "cold" January with many cloudy days, some rain, and some days with high temperatures in the 60s. People here are complaining, but it must sound pretty good to folks from colder climes.

A lovely poem by Rafael Alberti
It comes in handy at this mural Pa:

Se equivocó la paloma,se equivocaba.
Por ir al norte, fue al sur.
Creyó que el trigo era agua. Se equivocaba.
Creyó que el mar el cielo; que la noche, la mañana.
Se equivocaba.
Que las estrellas, roció;
que la calor, la nevada.
Se equivocaba....

Buen fin de semana ;)

Funny post and fun shot. Nice mural, too. We have seen some good-looking mallards down this way so maybe they did a U-turn when you weren't looking!

This mural is wonderful. I hope lots of people are looking up to see it!
