Nature always has great things to offer, it takes care of every human whether bad or evil, beautiful or ugly. Nature has been rewarding us and in return, it's our foremost duty to preserve it. The trees, the breeze, the rivers, the mountains, the sea, the pond, the green fields are a blessing.
This photo I picked from my archives, taken back on December 10.
We usually used to visit our farmhouse every month, about 90 km from our town Umrongso, India, where we are at present. During this lockdown, it has been really hard to maintain the routine.
I remembered the day perfectly, it was Saturday, a market day for the rural areas where more than 20 villages gather for their weekly needs. As I was back from the market while crossing the paddy fields, I saw a flock of ducks enjoying their time, swimming freely in the flooded paddy field. It mesmerized me and I didn't delay to take out my camera and took a few shots from my Vivo Y83 Pro.
This duck species is called **"Pati ducks"** here in our state in Assam, and native people used to domesticate it. The people used to domesticate it for the egg purpose and meat as well. It has a white ring in its neck and feet being yellow. We have domesticated a number of these duck species in our farmhouse in village. We used to feed them cooked paddy husk besides paddy. Like every other duck species, they love water, and always keep messing with our pond and fishes :)
I will try to bring out more photos of them and will look more closely on them when the pandemic ends.
I pray this ends soon.
Thanks for your visit :)
