Beautiful. Water that's not frozen!! The ducks are a bonus. :-)

So lovely. Look how they rest in a V-shape, too.

Love the brilliant bits of colour supplied by the 'metal head' mallards, and the silvery highlights in the reflections. Beautifully serene.

A nice group of ducks; the gadwalls are rare.

Julia said...

It must be where the phrase "Lucky Ducks" comes from.

Hugs,

Irma said...

Beautiful wild ducks.
Also a nice reflection.

MarkD60 said...

I love the green headed ducks!

Farm Girl said...

Lovely reflections and There is something so nice about seeing ducks asleep with their heads under their wings. Have a lovely day.

Karen said...

Cute ducks. If the weather gets warmer this weekend, I am going duck hunting! Can't wait to shoot some, with my camera that is ;)

joeh said...

Nice that you have an integrated pond.

Marit Sønstebø said...

They have so lovely colors!

Sylvia K said...

Love those happy ducks!! Great start for my day!!

Nancy said...

Now, that's a welcome sight. :)

don said...

A fine series of these ducks. They look placid and comfortable.

Sandra said...

the second shot made me think about Ducks liking line dancing..

Nancy Chan said...

I always marvel at the way they can turn their heads around to wash their backs.

Mama Zen said...

Pretty shots!

marshaleith said...

Lovely reflections...it will be at least a month before my ducks migrate back north again!!

Christine Wenger said...

Greats photos- I like the blurry grey colors.

Michelle said...

Mallards are so handsome.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Possibly cold, but a beautiful reflection!
I wonder about the V-formation.
Some theories support that they birds use a voting system to decide which way the flock should move. Just curious!

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Melissa said...

They must have found the one Whistler-free spot!

Small City Scenes said...

Oh Mallards they are everywhere aren't they. It rains and then there's a puddle and boom there are a pair of Mallards. Where did they come from???

Cette fois, ta photo, prend un air de peinture. Cette eau grise à mille reflets, ressemble à des touches de peinture. Le premier plan avec sa lumière rose est magnifique. Elle met parfaitement en valeur la beauté de ces canards à t^te verte. Félicitations.

Amitiés.

Fun60 said...

Formation duck swimming and their reflections. Great

Stephen Hayes said...

It looks like they're having a peaceful day. That hawk must not be around.

Jocee said...

Happy little ducks! Great reflections.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Hope they enjoy the company of Whistlers :)

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

You have them trained very well to get in formations like that.

Barb said...

You've had lots of ducks and birds visiting this winter. I hope the pond holds water through summer!

Debbie said...

because they are so common, it's so easy to not admire the mallards the way we should. they are so beautiful, those gorgeous green heads reflect nicely in the pond!!!

Birdman said...

These 'greenheads' are so much better then the greenheads we sometimes see invade area beaches. They fly. They are small. They bite like hell and bring a day at the beach to a quick halt. Ouch!

Andrea Priebe said...

I love how the bright green Malard males heads stand out in the reflection. Do these ducks not mingle with the Whistlers? They don't seem to be around ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Laura. M said...

I like the green head :)))

Miss Val's Creations said...

So beautiful and relaxing!

cieldequimper said...

Viera said...

Bob Bushell said...

Gosia k said...

I always like to look at these cute little flying birds. Regards.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Peaceful scene on your pond. Handsome ducks. I have seen both types of ducks and enjoy each. Nice pictures. Have a fine weekend!

Kovács Miklós said...

This species is very wide-spread in Hungary. Have a nice weekend!

messymimi said...

The Whistlers invited their cousins!

Our photos said...

Wow, the male mallards are really standing out !

barbara l. hale said...

They seem to be imitating a goose formation there. I've never seen a gadwall in real life. Glad I have you to show me new things.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So pretty and they make the best ducky reflections!

Susan said...

The reflections are beautiful!

Paula said...

Nice little vee formation they got goin' there.

Red said...

Some of those mallards should be soon visiting me. Actually some mallards are starting to arrive.

Stephanie said...

They look happy in the pond.

Janey and Co. said...

In bet they are ready for Spring too.

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

Looks like nap time!!

Lois said...

I think it's fascinating the way they tuck their heads in their backs and nap while floating on the water.

Ms. A said...

A nap sounds good! Been wondering how your weather has been?

bailey-road.com said...

The Whistlers let them come out to play?

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Perfect and relaxing!!

Brian King said...

See, that's how ducks are supposed to act! Not perched on bird feeders and bird baths. :-)

Randy said...

Just out for a Friday float.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Lovely photos and hope soon it will start looking like real spring.
We had 70s yesterday here in Dublin, GA but we went to Atlanta for the day and it was mean, windy and only 40°F over there! Today it was cool here as well with tonight 32°F. Let's hope our Japanese magnolia blossoms will not get damaged this year; they just opened up!
Hugs,
Mariette

Cloudia said...

Perfect way to float away the weeks stress!

I like mallards, which is fortunate because they seem to live all over the country.

Malyss said...

Cute little guys !

Paul said...

Those Mallards are certainly a photogenic group!

Ratty said...

Your pictures make me realize how much I need to find a pond around here. I miss going every day and watching the ducks and geese swimming.

Phil Slade said...

Wot! No Whistlers?

Tamago said...

Aw the ducks are so cute! Love their reflection on the pond :-)

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I still have the one pair of Mallards on my pond, but I can't get a clear shot of them. Love the reflections on the water.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

This is such a pretty sight and makes me think of spring to come.
Hugs, CM

Ian H said...

The greenheaded ones are mine! Tell them it's time to come home.
