It’s no secret that the past year has been hard for all of us. It’s easy to forget that while we humans are showing early signs of totally losing it, our fellow animals are still going on unaware that the ‘human world’ is collapsing around them. If you too, had doubts that everything’s going to be just fine, take a moment to appreciate this next video of an adorable duckling falling asleep with a flower on his head.
The video first appeared on The Mountain Farm’s Instagram account and quickly won over the heart of the internet community, being shared and reuploaded countless times. In the five days since it was uploaded, the original video already gathered more than 1M likes and 55K views.
The Mountain Farm is an organic farm based in Australia. They captioned the video of the duck with: “A sleepy ducky under a nasturtium flower sun hat, having a nap in the middle of the mint garden. This little one is from our latest batch of Call ducks that hatched two days ago! She came out of her egg backwards and we don’t have a name for her yet — should we call her Nasturtium?”
A Twitter user that goes by @wamlart (but isn’t actually Walmart), uploaded the same video and wrote: “if you are feeling sad please look at this cute duck.” And it seems that many people were sad that day, because just like the original video, this one received a lot of comments too. One user wrote, “This is literally the cutest [thing] I’ve ever seen,” and another added: “I was already gushing but when the baby fell asleep and the flower hat fell off…”
As you can only assume, it wasn’t long before the adorable duckling inspired Twitter users to show their creative side with adorable take-offs:
