Great reflections in all your photos. My eyes were drawn to the reflection patterns. It looks like special effect photography. Very pretty and the ducks are also charmers.
Hugs, and have a great weekend.

Never too many ducks, but if you replaced them with water lilies, there is a Monet in the making. I always marvel at the Wood Ducks, true to their name. Super rippling photos. Cheers, Jean,
