I love those closeup shots.
It makes me want to get closer and pet them. I don't think that they would stand for that though.

Have a great week.

The whistlers are amazing when they put one eye on the camera person. Their characteristic look is so attractive to me.

Have I ever mentioned how much your photos cheer me up, even on the worst days? Particularly your whistlers.

Thank you.

genie said...

I am beginning to feel like these are some of my long lost children I love them so. The second and third shots are my mega favorites.I’ve got an idea...How about me swapping you some Blue Jays for some Whistlers. We have a nice creek full of water, and I would gladly keep them in food. Only in my old lady dreams :-)

Michael Manning said...

Close ups like that you really see how the ducks have groomed perfectly.
