Hi Tex, Those Whistlers just look so satisfied. You know that old saying ... It's a dog's life ... How about we change that to It's a Whistler's life. :-)

I thought sure the last pic would be 2 ducks and a goose.

Do the geese fly down to Texas, or do they all stop in Jersey and Maryland?

Linda Kay said...

Such adorable faces. They are really cute ducks.

Give me a beak that can whistle like that and I will join the NY Philharmonic :)

These guys are very colorful and always cute. That's what I like about nature. We may, sometimes not get what we want, but if we set our 'wants' aside, for a second, we can immerse ourselves in the beauty of nature.

Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Ruth Hiebert said...
