Duck Shooter's Nightmare


Wearied by the long wait to first light, the duck shooter falls asleep in his mia mia and dreams he is surrounded by ducks, hundreds of them. Then the dream turns into a nightmare. He's sitting, with shotgun, boots and decoys, in Queen's Gardens, feeding the ducks, who flee to the sanctuary of the gardens even before the first shot is fired. And the nightmare is that he can't fire a shot. (Our comment on this year's duck shooting season. Our "dreamer" is "Photo News" photographer, John Green).
