The Pond in January

I purposely chose a couple of photos without Whistling Ducks (or any ducks) in them lest you get tired of seeing them.
 Just the browns and blues of Texas winter.
Dang! There's Whistlers behind the weeds!

Lovely reflections. I'm wondering how you ever found a spot without dicks in them though. ;))

Hi Theresa, Hmm. Camera shy Whistlers? Sure do like your pond. Great for H2O for critters, fire protection, and human enjoyment! Beautiful, too! Have a super nice day and a fine weekend!

Get tired of whistlers? I don't think so. And if you hadn't made me go in search in the weeds, I would have missed them! :-)

Lovely pix, Tex, and you know we all love those Whistlers. Lined up on a fence or swimming in twos, doesn't matter. Have you noticed that they are gaining any weight?

Cheers and hugs,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

JB

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You have sharper eyes than I do (not surprisingly)...I couldn't see the whistlers behind those weeds. And I really looked, because I don't ever get tired of them. (Only envious.)

Birdman said...

Sorry... but January is just so yesterday. Show it in April, please. hehehehehe

Jeanne said...

These are very beautiful, calm photos. I'll bet there is not that much calm nearby with all those goofy ducks. I love them though.

Red said...

Pretty tricky!

bailey-road.com said...

Lovely, sober color palette.

SquirrelQueen said...

Those Whistlers are sneaky little guys. I love these beautiful reflections.

Cloudia said...

Those are tranquil shots, Tex; But get tired of your Whistler pals? HAH! I bought a small swimming duck figurine for my writing/blogging desk because of you. . . (sometimes it is a Canada Goose or her cousin the Hawaiian NeNe)
