Bottoms Up!

Two ducks, South Shields

Tilesheds nature reserve

Two ducks out hunting for food at the Tilesheds nature reserve on the edge of South Shields.

Bottoms Up! This is an expression we often use when out drinking and socialising, representing the upturned glass as we empty the contents down our throats. I suppose we use a lot of expressions like this around the world – “cheers”, “salute”, bon appetite” etc.

I don’t suppose the ducks have a special “quack” expression when it’s time for social eating and drinking.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 165mm lens, /750 second, f6.7, iso 200

  1. This photo makes me smile. What a wonderful shot; it must have required great patience to catch these two at the same time. Bravo!!

  2. Neat picture, looks almost like a reflection. Or maybe an old I Love Lucy episode with Harpo Marx and Lucy.
