AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I love ducks and their reflections - they're so majestic yet simple somehow.

I don't know if I have told you this before, but I sincerely love and appreciate your haiku - always perfectly fitting to each post.

I like this! The ducks eye is amazing. I also ike the reflections one of them seems to be missing a head and the other a body.
