Morning Tex ....oh "a little happy a little goofy" just the way I love my life too. Love the Whistlers HUG B
So word verification sneaked in didn't it:)

EG CameraGirl said...

They are goofy but also so lovable!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

The lighting is perfect today for the Whistlers.

I see that you too have the nasty word verification. Seems while I'm perusing blogs today, it's the comment forms that are pop up...the embedded forms aren't inflicted in the glitch.

Lynne said...

I'll take "a little goofy, a little happy" any day!

Georgette Sullins said...

He does appear to be smiling in the last one.

DJan said...

For more than a hundred posts I have grown to know and love these goofy birds. All of them. BTW, I changed my comments to be embedded into the page, and the WV box went away. I remember I changed from embedded, though, because some Wordpress people couldn't post comments. We'll see if anyone complains. :-)

Love seeing your Whistlers, they are wonderful!

PS: Blogger has now with some troube with word verification...
Like you, I don't like to "Show word verification" on comments, so I choose NO, on Settings, but the Blogger don't save my settings NO. Do you have any clue for that? Many blogs friends are talking about it. Thanks!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Love these shots. Such a pretty bird with the tip of the beck like it was dipped in paint.
Hugs

Happy and goofy are the way to be. The second from the bottom... looks like it's saying "well shuckydern, thanks fer the great waterin' hole"!

Birdman said...

Jeepers! Do you wait all day for these visits?

Stephanie Faris said...

He does look pretty happy!!! And I love that speck of blue at the tip of his beak. It's probably a blue-tipped bird or something--I don't know my birds at all, if you can't tell!

S. J. Qualls said...

Always sweet...

sonia a. mascaro said...

sharon said...

love those beaks. What color they have!

Cranberry Morning said...

...and a little darned cute! :-)

joeh said...

I have to say it, go ahead and hate me, but i think those ducks deserve a fancy "store bought" feeder.

Justin Carfagnini said...

Beautiful shots!

Hilary said...

Here I was, thinking it was Tuesday, today. Your beautiful Whistlers set me straight.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

That body looks far too long for those little legs. It's a careful balancing act!

Sylvia K said...

Always look forward to Wednesdays Whistlers!! They are such a hoot!!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

"My good fortune, I have the feeder all to myself!"

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

A little goofy and happy work for me, especially with a pink beak and feeties!

don said...

The whistlers definitely have a personal style like other ducks. This is a great ongoing series.

Giga said...

Duck looks lovely. I greet you.

messymimi said...

He probably doesn't care about being called goofy as long as you feed him! Like me teens!

Stephen Hayes said...

I wish someone put out free meals for ME. Wait a minute; someone does, my wife. Take care.

Karen S. said...

A little goofy and a whole lot of happy, that totally describes them!

Terry and Linda said...

They are the most beautiful of ducks!

Beautiful blue on the end of its bill, love it.

P.S., Your comment format change doesn't affect those of us who use OpenID, as I discovered yesterday. Apparently it is something to do with OpenID not providing a third-party cookie to Blogger. I'm still trying to figure out why there are one or two Blogger blogs I can comment on that I don't have to fill out the Captcha box. Unfortunately, they are not ones I visit with any regularity and I don't remember who they were. I'm going to be paying better attention now, though!

Thanks for doing what you can to make it easier for everyone. Just thought you'd like to know about the OpenID issue.

Ms. A said...

The light and bokeh makes this Whistler pop.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Yes, he does look happy, must be the free food. Do you have a large crowd hanging out this year?

Gosia k said...

How many whistlers do you have on your farm?

Jeanne said...

Yeah!! sweet little buggers.

Primitive Stars said...

Love those happy goofballs, Francine.

Andrew Fulton said...

I wonder if I will ever see a duck on my bird bath.. lol

carolann said...

Oh my they are pretty I must say.

Mary Kirkland said...

Such pretty birds. My daughter just loves ducks so she would be in duck heaven at your place. lol

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice. Looks like he's laughing in the 5th one, so he is happy !

eileeninmd said...

I would love to have these "goofy" ducks in my yard.. I wish you could send me some.. Cute photos..

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I think they are a LOT goofy .... And seeing them makes me a LOT happy!

FOr some reason I can't understand I am unable to comment from my PC when the comment form is embedded. I think it might be going to spam. On my IPAD (where I am now) I can comment.

KB Bear said...

They are SO beautiful, and these photographs are great!

I see that you've found the same solution to word verification as I did. If you embed the comment form, there's no word verification!

Lynn said...

I have to laugh, he does look like a happy guy:@)

Cloudia said...

Now I'm happy too!

Brian King said...

He is a rather smug looking weisenheimer! Kinda like, hey, look where I am! :-) Nice background!

Lois said...

Just looking at him makes me happy!

Randy said...

They are funny.

Barb said...

Someone should fashion clothespins that look exactly like Whistler's beaks.

Stephanie said...

They are very very cute! I look forward to Wednesdays for the Whistlers.

Paula said...

And a lot cute. Do the ducks eat the algae off your pond? John told me they do and I was skeptical until I did see one duck that appeared to be eating it. We have a lot of it now and the ducks have come back.

Gillian Olson said...

Agree with previous post, love those Whistler Wednesdays!

Felicia said...

Gert said...

Cette prise de photos, scène par scène est d'une extrême précision et nous permet de suivre ce repas " gastronomique " qui semble tant lui plaire.
Bravo.
