She is lovely, rather elegant I think! There are no birds in my garden tall enough to drink from the birdbath while standing on the ground! Louis (our dog) can/does though ;)

Love that 'flying pig' below. What a nice man to give it to you and make your day, it would have made mine too.

How in the world can you get just clear, crisp closeups??? Are you a personal friend?!?!?!...:)JP

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Snappy Di said...

Priscilla is precious...

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Those are a great set. Wonderful close-ups where we can really study the fine details of her. Also, I got an early Father's Day gift yesterday. Mr. Squirrel now has a new home! It truly was a wonderful day yesterday.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

She is very pretty!

Judy said...

Priscilla makes me smile :)))

Jill said...

She is stunning and so are these pictures!

More of my cuties, love these shots. Especially the capture of the water dripping. Thanks for sharing. You know I just love these ducks.

Montanagirl said...

Nice! That birdbath is just the right height for her!

Sandra said...

in one of these she is SMILING she really is, yum good clean water not that yucky pond stuff she swims in. the one with the beak in like a straw is totally way cool.

Roan said...

I've been playing catch up this morning. Love Elvis and Priscilla. lol The Painted Bunting is gorgeous. The Play Squirrel, hilarious! Good call.

Jan n Jer said...

She is a pretty one...great series of shots. You have so many photo ops right in your own backyard!

edenhills said...

I can see why Elvis would fall for her. She is quite an elegant beauty.

What a nice blog you have. Pricilla is quite the duck!!! Your photos of her are so clear and sharp--great pics. Mickie :)

pattisjarrett said...

That birdbath is just her size! She is SO pretty.

Cindy said...

This duck looks like it's feathers are painted on. So very pretty!

Gone Country said...

Love these! What a great series of shots! And the 'duck bath' is perfect! Pretty Priscilla!

Katie @Pinke Post said...

Fun series! My hubs said a box from you came from me but I won't be home until Sunday to get it. Can't wait!
Enjoy the weekend.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I love the photos, but I have to comment on that bird bath, waterer. I could never have one that low (cats,) but it's such a great idea for ducks. :)

don said...

A fine near-time-lapse series showing this bird's drinking ability. Fine, detailed shots!

Samantha said...

I find it hilarious that with an entire POND, she drinks from a bird bath! :)

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Oh my goodness.I love that shot where you can see the depression in the water and the drops falling from her bill.That is gorgeous.

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

wayside wanderer said...

Prissy has a pretty profile. :)

Bare bilder - Pictures only said...

She is a beauty:)
Great pictures from you again:)
Have a nice weekend:)

Susan said...

What a wonderful set of photos! I've never seen a whistling duck before. Your images are worthy of being framed. She's beautiful! What wonderful captures! Is she oaky with your presence or do you have a blind?

forestwalk/laura k said...

great pic's!!! she's so pretty...oh so pretty...oh no, did i really just say that! she looks like a Priscilla!! C U T E!!

Martha Z said...

These are such pretty birds and that birdbath is just the right height for her to get a drink.

Janie2 said...

Hey you, love your blog and always look forward to seeing what you see. I like # 3 with beak in water and # 10 with the drip from beak!!!! What a great bird. Today I am going to post what I saw out my bedroom window as I lay in bed with coffee trying to wake up. Doing more of what you suggested. Thank you!

Tina Eudora said...

Texwis she is absolutely gorgeous, what a precious princess! Lucky you to have her there to look at all the time.

Tracy said...

Oh, bless her heart. I love the photo of her drinking the water and I also adore the close up. She has lovely eyes!
sweet sweet thing...

Dina said...

Great series. The duck looks so domesticated here.

Gary said...

Geez, I thought it was because she was such an elegant drinker, not because she's hanging around with an older guy!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Dyche Designs said...

What great shots, love them.

Negerigeletschtempoit said...

Priscilla is a doll. Her feathers are so smoothly set that it looks like velvet.

I love the name you gave to her. Very feminine, delicate.

Becca said...

Aw, she is so pretty, and how wonderful you captured her getting a drink of water...so sweet!

Rose said...

She seems so comfortable with you taking pictures of her...are you sure you didn't hire her to pose? LOL

Wonderful shots...

beth said...

i love that girl !!

Robin said...

T, she is very pretty! It's funny that she walked over to the bird bath to have a drink. Must taste better than pond water!

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

Priscilla is beautiful.
And your photographs of her great.
Have a beautiful weekend too.

Evelyn S. said...

Oh, to have that much space for all the wildlife. Priscilla looks almost painted....everything about her is so neat and "deliberate." (does that make sense?)

*Honest Abe said...

Nice photographs.

Ms. Becky said...

gosh, I don't think I could ever tire of looking at that gorgeous color of beak. she's a beauty. great series of photos.

Clint said...

Prissy seems to be hittin' that fountain pretty hard. You sure you only put water in there?

Picturit said...

She is a gem and you have captured her beautifully.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Texwisgirl, Well, she does look like her name and also looks incredibly happy! Have a great day today!

Furry Bottoms said...

Not afraid of a thing, totally regal and in control of her surroundings. I love how she drinks the water!

holdingmoments said...

She's a beauty; and so dainty.

The Village Queen said...

Well I have one of those bird baths, but nothing that pretty to drink out of it! So nice!

Woody said...

She's a sweetie! We have a small fountain near the house that attracts small birds to drink, but nothing this beautiful.

Lesa said...

What a pretty duck! I haven't seen that type around here. Any extras about? Send a few north of the Red River.

Louise said...

She knows where to go to get a drink!

SquirrelQueen said...

Priscilla is such a beauty and very dainty when taking a drink. I do wish we had the Whistling ducks in the wild in this area.

I really liked your post of the dogs and their bones.

Priscilla is a beautiful lady!
