I smiled and thought of you both days I played in the golf tournament this week. On hole number 10, there were Whistlers lining the left rough, next to the lake. Just made me SMILE! (maybe that's why I played so well!) blessings and hugs ~ tanna
nice reflections, T. have a great weekend! ( :
Fun pictures and I really like the reflection shots.Hope you enjoy the weekend.
I'm with the whistlers and turtles...I really like your natural barrier!
I'm with Tanna they just make me smile
Very beautiful photosHave a nice weekendNordis
I would love to have these cute ducks visit my pond!
I think I recognize some of the faces. Also, there whistling sonds familiar. ;-0
That little island practically needs its own traffic report!
Ha ha that is dual purpose. Have a fabulous Friday.Best wishes Molly
awww...a sandbar in the pond. Have a great weekend.
Those whistlers are loving you for that nice barrier!
Such lovely photos with reflections. Is it very hot yet?
I love seeing them sitting on the ground giving their legs a rest! I seldom see birds so relaxed.
i like them lined up on that branch like that!
They are so lucky to have you setting the stage for more fun in the sun! It's so lovely!
These barriers may serve to keep the horses where they should be,but they also serve to create amazing pictures.
A real whistle stop. Have a great weekend.
I like the reflections. As if you didn't already have enough whistlers! :-)
Nice reflection images duviser. Smiles of "ducks" as a piano sheet music :)
You have a VERY LARGE family . . .
They are Beautiful. Love how they lined up for you for the shot. :)
even if you took out the ducks, these are awesome pics. the third down is a perfect arrow, did you see that and the barrier looks like music flowing.. the first one reminds me of the old cane mill. to make sugar they use the long thing for the person or a mule to walk around and push the center to squeeze it. looks just like the press
They think you built it just for them:)
What a perfect little spot to bask in the sun. I love the reflections of the whistlers lined up on the branch.
I love that they have such a nice island. They all look so happy.
Love it (them!)
I'm so glad that the whistlers are doing their best to entertain us through your blog. It's fun seeing them change position. I can imagine them trying to please you with their poses.Love their reflections in the water.Have a nice weekend.Hugs,JB
truly those whistlers quack me up .... ;)
I invented a new word "Morducks"."You have morducks than anybody else"
It looks like you've created a great little oasis for the ducks right there! Perfect.
I love how the whistlers move about, 3 close together, one farther away who sees he needs to close the gap, etc. I could watch those quackers all day!Jo, Stella and Zkhat
They look so sweet sitting on a log....Heidi
I like the reflections!
They are very calm, rested and you, took advantage. The third photo is great, the reflection is the same :))A kiss.
so lovely!love the reflections and composition here:)
These are so beautiful, I wish I could take pics too.
I like this series of these ducks enjoying your horse barriers. The reflection shots give an extra "push" to the shots. Very well done.
I am thinking of "Do Re Me..."
Hello!Captivated me your goose.It's a real model. Survey on the surface of the water.Beautiful images.Regards:)Lucia
Série magnifica com lindas cores e nitidez. ag
They posed so nicely for you! Love the ones with the reflections in the water, especially.
They are just so comical. I just love them. Must make you smile when you see them!
Those Whistlers must just love you! They're so fun to see in your photos. Love the Turtle on his little island too!
I bet they think you put those there just for them!
I have not seen this type of duck before. they look so amusing. what a great series of photos.
hehe, i know what you mean!! i take 100's of pictures of the same thing....then i think they are all marvelous and want to share them all!! i use a lot of self restraint in preparing my entries, so peeps come back ;)))you sure do have a popular place!!
I love your choice of materials as a barrier! Especially that curved branch. Makes for some great photos!!
Love your ducks and turtles, but especially love the reflections!
So cool! I love the shots of the birds on the branch.
The whistlers look like musical notes on a scale.
I love hanging on the ranch.Aloha
That is a lot of ducks! Cool reflections.
those ducks are really funny! they seem to admire themselves!
Very cool pictures!
Wow - your place is like a wildlife sanctuary - very cool. I love the way the ducks are all lined up on top of the barrier in the first picture - makes me wonder what they're watching.
Ehhh.. What a beautiful place to live.. Happy Ducks.. :-)))
That is amusing that those little logs could stop the horses. I would have thought it required more.
het lijkt wel alsof ze in de uitverkoop zijn.
I just love the picture with the four ducks standing of the branch and their reflection on the water : the composition is so nice... But all the set is very pleasant to look at.
Love these ducks. Do they really "whistle"?
You could set up a Whistling Duck Hostel
Lovely photos of the ducks!
Love, love, love your daily pictures.
They just make me smile, love these cuties! Great shots , all of them!
Is the orange fence history?
Those ducks are weird!
T, glad you got all your ducks in a row!
that perch makes for great reflection shots too!
Still weird seeing ducks perch but they sure have some great spots to use!
I still find it funny to see ducks sitting along a branch like that! What a fun place you have with so much wonderful nature to see.
Yes, I like the reflections with those ducks in the branch!
These critters seems to have found an oasis surrounded by water. Their own little safe place for sunning and napping!
I'll bet the Whistlers think your place is THE BEST! Great captures!~Lindy
Was it really difficult to train them to always line up like that?
Such a wonderful place to hang out, lovely pictures, great reflections...Francine.
Love how they perch! Obviously they have a better sense of balance than I do.
Beautiful shots. The reflections are so pretty.
So artistic in and of itself sitting there. Add the wildlife and whoa!
Great shots, as always. Puzzling though, do you give them directions? (Everyone face the camera)
Four in a row, the funny ducks again.Greetings,Filip
I love how they perch on that branch. They seem like they have such personality!
Do they whistle a different tune each day? I love the reflections on the water. 'love & hugs from afar'
Dearest Theresa,Wow, that is quite a densely populated island! Must be a favorite to all.Hugs,Mariette
I love the way they sit, one up one down, then back up. Beautiful shots with some nice reflections.
Love the whistler reflection pics! That's like double the whistlers. it's a good thing.
What an excellent perch!!
looks like a peaceful island retreat!
I said if before, I think, the ducks are so funny when they sit like this! Photo nr. 9 was little special with the turtle in the middle.Have a nice weekend! /Pia
Hi Theresa, Glad you have your ducks in a row! Ha! Have a super weekend!
And here I thought you put those poles across there just for the Whistlers! Love them perching on only one leg! :)
I love your ducks. Great shots of them just hanging around. Have a great weekend. Margaret
Very cool photos and neat reflections!
What a lovely bunch of quackers!
You have an ever-changing sculpture there at the pond.
I see you do truly have your ducks in a row:@)
Dearest Theresa,What an amazing scene and made me smile with with them in a row♡♡♡ Love the beautiful reflection, my friend.Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
That's really clever how you got those ducks to hop up on the tree and balance like that. ;)
Love the reflections and those silly Ducks. You also are helping the wildlife by adding the natural stuff. Goodo! MB
Nice reflections. :)
Fun to look at images. Happy weekend! :)
Must be where the saying "get my ducks in a row" comes from. LOL.Felicia
I like seeing them on their perches. The water looks so still and reflective. I think it is so pretty.
A duck conference!
This natural barrier is stunningly beautiful - a work of ART! Does it work keeping the horses out? It is prettier than the orange fencing :)
I see the SMARTPAK advertisement for "Bug Off" I just bought some... my friend swears it works - it has garlic in it and the horses love the taste. We will see :)
Loving the reflections!
Great pictures! You are spoiling me with all these wonderful shots of these birds.
I love the ones of the whistlers on the curved branch, with their reflections below. And the symmetry in the last two pictures looks staged.
Look at all your critters! I really love the pics with the whistlers and turtle.:)
The reflections area fabulous! All great pics. Thanks,jj
This makes me smile. I grew up on a little pond with ducks and turtles and a little boat of my own for me and my dog. Your posts bring back good memories. xo
Wow to have a pond with ducks and turtles would be a dream for me. Lovely images!! :)Regards,Angad
That is one useful little island.
j'adore les reflets
Trop beau, ce blog !
They surely enjoy that spot. Very cool shots!
Whistlers on Friday?
What a great little place you have guarded off from the horses to cross the pond, and it gives the wild to have some nice sunning and safe areas. The water reflection images are absolutely stunning! I saved a Red eared Slider just yesterday, when crossing a busy roadway~
This looks like a really nice area TexWisGirl :-)Nice weather that ducks on the branch above the water.I also see turtles here.
I think I could easily sit and watch them all day!
Makes me think of a video from the muppets that Lorelei used to like...about the number 4....only it would be ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR whistlers standing by the shore.....
Love these! But then, you knew that.
Just looking at those little buggers is fun. It appears they are accustomed to posing for you.
These are great. Thanks for these reflections.
OH HOW I LOVE YOUR BLOG AND THESE SWEET WHISTLERS! I NEVER COULD WHISTLE! LOL! I CAN NOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR HELPING ME IDENTIFY THOSE BIRDS I FOUND AT THE OPEN SPACES AT THE REC CENTER TODAY! I THOUGHT THE WHITE ONE MIGHT HAVE BEEN AN EGERT BUT WAS NOT 100% SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY KINDS! YOU ARE AN AMAZING GAL AND I AM HAPPY I KNOW YOU HERE! OH I AM SO HAPPY! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT! HUGS ANNE
Ring around the turtle! :-)
Such beautiful shots and reflections.
Fun reflections!xo Catherine
Silly, goofy-ass ducks! :-)
Have you ever tried to count your whistling duck population? I am just awed every time I think of having that many (of any duck, but especially this wonderful one).
I've never heard of whistling ducks!!! They're brown and beautiful!!!
I love these guys (thanks for the introduction). I like all the photos, but the ones with the four ducks on the branch are amazing!
