Whistlers on Wednesday 25

The lighting is not ideal on these, but I'd say this was certainly a case of 'getting your ducks in a row.'











Rather like cowboys at the saloon. :)

Your whistlers are too fun and I have to say I like this lighting; it makes me feel almost as though I were there.

Hmmm, you take such good care of them that you could almost be...wait for it.....whistler's mother!

Thank you for your kindness my friend, it means more than I can say.

It stills amazes me the wild life you receive around your place. It would be cool to set up a camera that would take pictures of everything that came by for a day.

Your ducks are so entertaining. This looks like the multiplication of the ducks. First there was one, then there were two, then three and then four and finally there were five. Great photography.

Hugs,
JB

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,'
Lovely photo and they do have smiling faces! For getting ducks in a row, you ought to be in Indonesia where a guy will be herding them with a stick and a cord hanging down from it. One leader follows that cord and the rest is all lined up. They are so elegant and I LOVED to see this; made my day...
Hugs,
Mariette

Brian King said...
