"Web feet"ology


~~~Web feet connection~~~

Some gulls will hang around when I'm out in the water,
while others are just a bit wary
and head for the hills.

 Now the ducks are very calm and amiable...

 They give me a wide berth...

 because they know I'm just no threat to them

 even when I charge into the water...fetch, after fetch, after fetch.

 These two appeared to be best buds today...


Whether you have web feet 
under the water 
like myself  and Ducky 
or web feet 
out of the water
 like "Johnathan Seagull",
 our moments in and near the water
are spontaneous,
instinctual,
and
natural.

  11. Birds like ducks have physiological tricks to keep their webbed feet warm even in freezing water (counter-current exchange blood flow)... You must have tricks too, Sophie! You look like you're having a blast in that very cold water!

    Our Labs will swim even when the air is freezing. Are you the same way?
