Hi Tex, Got a kick out of these photos. One of the developmental milestones for 5 year old children is to be able to stand on one foot for at least 9 seconds. Bet these guys can do it for an hour or more! :-) John

Revrunner said...

Very thoughtful ducks. Who knew? :-)

Gosia k said...

A big collection.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Barely any legs between them!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I never tire of all your whistlers!! They're such charmers!

Janey and Co. said...

Are you trying to confuse me? I almost panicked that I had forgotten to put the trash out ( Weds is trash day).
Beautiful pictures to see at the beginning of this new year!

Team G Square said...

Lovely pictures of this bird. Happy new year.

bas said...

Geweldig mooi om met z,on pracht serie het nieuwe jaar te beginnen.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm assuming they're reflecting on their lives in 2014 and wondering what 2015 holds in store. :)

Bethany Carson said...

Nice reflections!

DJan said...

Wonder why they usually choose their right leg to tuck under. People have handedness that gives them a left- or right-handed bias. Maybe they do, too, only in their case it would be webbed footedness. :-)

Reflecting Whistling Ducks, cool shots. I love them all. I wonder if they reflect on their past year too.

Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

It looks like everything's ducky. Are the Oregon fans?

Lynn said...

Chillin', pondering life... Seems to be what they do best! Well, except maybe eating:@)

Jo said...

Interesting collection of one-legged Whistlers, LOL! Happy New year to you. Greetings Jo

Kate said...

Great reflections of your favorite ducks!

Sandra said...

looks like they were discussing if they wanted to do the rockette line again, then made the decision to do a trio...

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Hee hee! You know I LOVE 'em!! Such beautiful images, T. blessings ~ tanna

magnoliasntea said...

Lovely reflections! What a life. :)

Birdman said...

File this under the 'stupid question dept.'. Do they actually whistle? Why the name?

Giga said...

Ducks seemed to like August available for viewing in the water, as in a mirror. Yours in a new year!

Irma said...

Beautiful picture of your favorite Whistlers.
Beautiful also the reflection.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Love them all, but the last one most :)

MarkD60 said...

Poor little one legged duckies!

William Kendall said...

They're obviously up to something. Conspiring about world domination, perhaps?

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

In the second photo everyone (except for one) is on the right leg and on the other half the left leg. They meant to do that you know.

don said...

Those whistlers are so photogenic. Very good series.

I don't think they care what year it is as long as they have their pond and food.

Pom Pom said...

Ha! So wise and thoughtful, those big chested Whistlers!

Red said...

Since they are so well cared for at your place they can afford to sit around and reflect on the world.

I wish reflecting was just as easy for us humans. :)

You have a great way with words and wordplay, T! Wonder if the Whistlers had any great thoughts while reflecting? :-)

Sally Crowe said...

I always love the reflections, and these are great. :)

messymimi said...

Maybe if we could reflect as well as they do, we could solve all the world's problems!

Linda Kay said...

What would you do without your friends the whistlers? Great shots, especially the last one with the three and their reflection.

They seem to know how lovely they look! Love the reflections.

Munir said...

Love their sense of unity.

Hope that every one is safe from that fire from the tuck accident talking about.

Happy New Year to you, your family and your birds and squirrels and other critters.

Hannah said...

I don't think I can leave as good a reflection as all your whistling ducks, they are great at it and at standing on one leg too. I just wish I could hear the whistling sound. Their bronzy chest feathers really shine in the sun. Cool shots!

Our photos said...

I agree, they are reflecting (a lot) !

Cloudia said...

Nice reflection work too, Tex!

Dearest Theresa; How cute and adorable your whistlers with one-legged in the reflection photographs♡♡♡ I LOVE the last one very much with the effect which they look like balls :-)

Haha, I had sudden chore today, but try as much as I can to visit friends like I wish to do this year.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Love their matching feet and beaks.

Wow! What great views of your Whistlers! I love the reflections in the water!

Terri Buster said...

They look a bit sleepy. Great shots as always Theresa!

Black Jack's Carol said...

Fun shots, TexWis. I found the first comment here interesting. I wonder at what age a duck first stands on one leg and whether the parents notice the developmental stage :) Liked that little trio shot too!

Jeevan said...

wow! fantastic shots and reflection.... interesting to see all standing on a foot

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Definitely love the reflections.....

Helma said...

That last photo I find a very nice editing:-)
I hope this year many beautiful pictures, see pictures of them:-)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

I'll just have to run up to West Palm Beach and get a Whistling-Duck fix! Your crowd seems to be growing!

'Tsuki said...

I love how we saw those little ducks grow all this past year... And I'm happy you didn't eat all of them at Chrimas. ^^

Happy New Year !

NatureFootstep said...

I think I have to find a viedo and listen to their sounds :)
