Driftin' Diner

Yesterday was no ordinary day for the Mallards.
 With their necks outstretched, they paddled hard into the current.

 Then with desperate power turns they would snap up their driftin' dinner.

 No, there was no dabbling for the ducks yesterday because a benthic drift smorgasboard was being served up at the Driftin' Diner.

 So what was in the drift to defer their dabbling?
I waded into an eddy to let the current bring me a sampling.

 Stoneflies

 Stonefly nymphs.

Midges.
That was my sampling of the Driftin' Diner menu.

The Diner was apparently open most of yesterday, but today the Mallards are back to dabbling for dinner along the shore.
