A study in gold!

Dianna said...

So pretty!
I have to share this with you: yesterday afternoon, I was on the phone with my friend as she drove home from work. Suddenly, she screeched: "Oh my GOSH! I have to GO!". Of course, that scared me, but what happened was: she had spotted a painted duck in the pond as she drove down her lane, and wanted to get a picture I thought about you and your ducks!

The ducks blend in with the color of the water. The reflections are good and especially pretty when they reflect the blue sky.

Hi Tex, I like that word "Gadwallian" ... wonder how they ever came up with a name like Gadwalls? Neat pics!

Karen S. said...

Lovely things. My first day of spring treat was- we counted 10 Robins (seriously different ones too) hanging close to us all the way to the bus this morning! How cool is that!

Ripples and reflections are very nice.

SweetMarie said...

these photos sparkle! beautiful reflections!

Maggid said...

Gadwallians . . it's a type of duck person??? - like whistlers are a type???

It sounds like a word for important/impressive people - Like Dicksonian Scholars, maybe . . . or a congregation of legal people, wearing powdered wigs in Great Britain . . .

oh, the JOY of finding new things on your blog . . . limitless love & a stellar day to you, -g-

I tried to delete the previous comment because of the typos. Lately on blogger the typing on my comments before I publish them can barely be seen. It looks like I need a new ribbon in an old typewriter!

Anyway, it was supposed to say that I love how the water shimmers.

P.S. I have Indian paint brush blooming!

Ruth Hiebert said...

The reflections are wonderful and so are the patterns in the water.

Stephanie said...

Beautiful duck images and love the patterns created in the reflections.

Munir said...

Gadwal is a place in India. I wonder if these ducks are form there, originally. They are cute. Thanks for sharing.

Those Gadwallians are swimming on a crystal clear pond; hence such perfect reflections.
Enjoy the arrival of spring!
