I don't think you should call them hideous even in jest. The whistlers are sure to join their side, not yours!

Donna OShaughnessy said...

The tiny bits of green in the backgrounds...like hope.

marilyn said...

I like those reflections...they do give some amount of camouflage for the ducks. Not so much for the male with his beautiful head.

Roxy the traveling dog said...

I love wood ducks, they are so pretty

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

how much wood would a wood duck do if a wood duck did do wood? lot of little woodies out there if a wood duck didn't duck.

:-P

the wayside wanderer said...

Are they nesting nearby? And pondering the comment of the gal who called them "hideous." Seriously?

Hilary said...

You're very lucky to get such amazing ducks out your way.. these and the whistlers. And they're very lucky to have someone admire them so.

Anita Davis said...

Yeah!!!!!!
Duckies!!!!!!
That is right I never tire of seeing beautiful ducks. And you always have the prettiest ducks. :D
Have a great weekend!

These are gorgeous. I really like the almost monotone look. It's so calm and peaceful.

Kerry said...

Divine reflections. They have no idea how beautiful they are, paddling through the water like that.

Rita said...

What a view you have! I love all your feathered company. :)

ladyfi said...

What fun shots.

Thanks for your help with Inger. I have now seen her comments in my spam queue and approved them. I changed my spam settings so that her comments won't be automatically deleted.

Elaine said...

Delightful! The Wood Ducks really set off the reflections--or is it the other way round?

pattisjarrett said...

You must be the duck whisperer: First, you got all black- bellied whistling ducks in North America, and now the wood ducks!

rainfield61 said...
