Duck tattoos

Duck Tattoos - Think 'duck'.

Disney's Donald Duck likely comes quickly to mind, or any of his extended family, including his girlfriend Daisy, and Uncle Scrooge McDuck, or nephews Huey, Dewie and Louie. Or Warner Brothers' Daffy Duck, or that ill-tempered Howard the Duck from Marvel Comics.

The expression 'lame duck' is familiar, or "Duck!" (as in, watch out!) Or the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup. Or, 'Ducky', the term of endearment. There's Peking Duck, duck a l'orange, 'sitting duck' and 'dead duck' (yikes!), and rubber ducky, and-the poor duck has been co-opted into our modern culture without much respect for the many natural characteristics that, through the ages, have made it a symbol of honesty, simplicity, and resourcefulness.

Time for a reality check-ducks are the largest and most diverse and versatile group of waterfowls, being as much at ease on land as in the air or on the water. Their short legs, webbed feet and efficient wings allow them to allude enemies by flying, diving, swimming or running. As a result, they've earned a reputation for being resourceful.

Their habitat is predictable-wet reedy lakes to which they return year after year. Their broad, flat bill is well suited to foraging in these shallow waters. Native North Americans long ago took notice of the duck's patience, placidity, and their apparent knowledge of the edible treasures that lie underwater. One creation myth involves a duck heroically diving to the bottom of the sea to bring up mud, so that Coyote could put the finishing touches on his creation-'the earth'.

In the Celtic tradition, the duck symbolizes honesty, simplicity, and once again, resourcefulness. It is revered as much for its proportion and beauty as for its adaptability and sensitivity to its environment. Honesty and understanding are other duck attributes and associations that have grown up over time.

The male of the species owns the most colourful plumage, but both sexes are graceful and agile in the water, and are known for their easy adaptation to nature. They seem very much at home in their chosen water world. For most people, the duck connotes comfort. It seems the perfect bird, unperturbed and enjoying life. 'Water off a duck's back,' refers to a disregard for worldly concerns.

The duck's strong sense of community provides the hunter with dozens, sometimes hundreds, of targets in a single sighting. The hunter's decoy - a wooden facsimile of the duck that floats on the water to attract the flock - has become a decorative feature in many households of the Canadian prairie and the Great Plain of the United States. And duck hunting in the Fall and Autumn as the flocks make their annual migratory pilgrimage south to warmer climes is a deeply engrained cultural practice in many rural areas. Duck hunters have long recognized their unique role in protecting duck environments and ecosystems to ensure the long-term viability of their sp...
