Macro Monday: 01-12-09 Duck Butt

Macro Monday - hosted by Lisa

OK, I debated whether posting a duck's butt would be appropriate, but Lisa posted photos of HER OWN EXCISED RIB for god's sake!!! After it had been in the freezer for SIX YEARS!!! I KNOW! How's that for the ewwwww factor?

So I feel totally justified in presenting this cute little D.A. (for those who were born after, say, 1960 - a D.A. was a really bizarre haircut that delinquent and delinquent wannabe boys used to wear - D.A. being short for Duck's Ass, cuz that's sort of what it looked like, all swept up in back, but with product. Lots of product. Really I think the technical term for it was Duck Tail. End of history lesson).

Plus the front end of the duck was a little blurry. You've gotta work with what you've got.

I love the feathers and the little foot in the water. As always, for your total enjoyment, click on the photos to enbiggen them.

Now, I always complain when magazine ads only show parts of women's bodies, it seems so exploitative. So in fairness to the duck, here's the whole hog.

Well you know I'm a waterfowl enthusiast, so I loved these!!!

June said...

You bet...a duck's behind is nowhere near as "ewwey" as Lisa's rib :-)

Jenners said...

What an odd duck! (Had to say that...I've just never seen one this color before!)

And one can post anything ickier than Lisa's rib photo! I would never in a million years have expected that!

And I love these photos...I think duck's butts are probably one of the less gross butts in the world!

And if you are interested, my Macro Monday post is here:

:) You crack me up wondering about the appropriateness of a duck butt. :) Too funny! :)

Terri said...

So Lisa, would that be a butt crack up? but not a quack up.

Kath said...

I enjoyed the history lesson AND the beautiful pictures in this post! And um, it's no where near inappropriate!

Barb said...

I love it! Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I really like this D.A. much better than the greasy kid stuff ones. He's a pretty little duck, too!

The subtle colors in the feathers are really pretty.
