Caption This 30


Please suggest a name and/or caption for this image [See below for details]
London, ON, July 2007 [Click to enlarge]


When I took our two youngest to feed the ducks in a local park (see here, here and here), they reminded me to take my camera before leaving the house. They know me so well.

I took lots of pictures that day. Many of them looked like duck pictures I've taken on previous trips to unload our stale bread (recycling, after all.) But this one spoke to me. I'm not sure what it's saying, though. Which is where you come in...

Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this image. Suggest many captions, if you wish. Anything goes. Well, nothing profane or racist, but you get the picture. Go nuts and have fun: I'll post the winner next week. If you need a Caption This primer, click here for the sorta-rules.

About last week: Many of you tossed in some very creative captions for last week's chain link picture. As always, I had a rockin' good time deciding. Also as always, I had difficulty choosing just one. These made me both laugh and/or think:
  • Bob-kat: Holding on.
  • MissMeliss: To communicate through silence is a link between the thoughts of man (Marcel Marceau).
  • John: Together we are one.
  • Vid Digger: We were made for each other, and nothing will tear us apart except bolt cutters.
In the end, the winner was the first to submit: "They had a bond that could not be broken" from Carli. She's not only my almost-name-a-like; her blog is a consistently great read. Please drop by and wish her a happy.

These humans really quack me up by feeding us stale, moldy bread. I bet that Aflac guy gets fresh stuff.

He (or she) looks very serene. How about this:

"In serenity's wake."

Michele sent me,

Again, I have no caption. But I just got home from a show, so I have improv on the brain, and therefore offer the following:

185 ducks walk into a bar, and the bartender says, "Get out of here, we don't serve ducks."

The ducks say, "Yeah, we're leaving anyway. This place isn't all it's quacked up to be."

(In my own defense, the point of the 185 game is that it's a groaner achievement game - we TRY to make the audience groan at bad puns.)

"Going with the flow"

Yet another lovely photo! I've missed catching up on your goings on. Lucky Michele sent me back to catch up!

PI said...

I don' wanna make waves - I just want a quiet paddle!
Now Carmi its time for sweet dreams.
You and Mike are stalwart friends to Michele (I've just left there) and now you deserve to get some rest. Quiet peaceful thoughts.
I love Mismeliss's joke!

"Swim of solitude"

When I look at this I think of being alone...and liking it! I wrote a post on that ("Lonely...or alone?) and there is truly loveliness in being by oneself...even for ducks, I would think!

Lori said...

(Or "Solitary Swim")

Beverly said...

Mama! Mama! Where's my mama?

Once we took our daughter to a restaurant where there were always ducks outside. We looked in the pond, and there was a family of ducks swimming. Far behind thee was a duckling swimming for all he was worth, quacking, saying, "Wait for me! Wait for me!"

Bob-kat said...

"If I practice very hard, one day the world water speed record WILL be mine!"

Such a cute bundle of fluff :)

Meeta said...

"He can find his own food for all I care"...she said as she swam away.

Thumper said...

"Duck...Duck...?...Where's the goose?"

craziequeen said...

'look! look! I can do ducky paddle!'

[chuckle]

I love ducky pictures, Carmi :-)

Michele sent me to see you this Sunday evening, honey.

But I do enjoy reading everyone else's...and what a gorgeous picture! That's quite a wake for such a little thing.

Harold had been taught to follow the leader.....and then he discovered he was it!

Michele sent me back, Carmi!

K Jones said...

"Hah! And you said these damned webbed feet were good for nothing," replied the Ugly Duckling to the squirrel.

Vid Digger said...

Oh my God! Bread crumbs! Webbed feet, don't fail me now!

Vid Digger said...

Oh yeah... Thanks for picking my Caption, Carmi!

Wonder if I'll make the cut gain? :)

moon said...

For some reason, he seems to be going fast to me so.....as he huffs and he puffs the caption is...
HEY, WAIT UP!!

'B' said...

I have had time now to think of something else to say about this...

The saying, before one walks, one must learn to crawl...

Well, before one flys, one must learn to paddle to speed!!!

Here from Michele's, you swine you, you beat me by miliseconds to shane!!! Never mind, always a pleasurre to stop by!!

Shane said...

"Sheesh, I wish the guy in the water would slow down . . . I'm gettin' kinda tired."

scrappintwinmom said...

I have no caption as always. I'm so lame.
But I wanted to stop by again this weekend and give you a hi-five for standing up for Michele during the drama the other night. You totally rock, and I'm so happy to know you.

John said...

"No matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to out-paddle these ripples"

"All-Systems 2-Legged Duck Drive."

I have no caption... just had to comment, though, as I think that this is an awesome photo.

(Just to note: I like kenju's caption.)
