Can you handle some more Wood Ducks? I love the wiggly tree reflections in these.


Tough guy

Competition moves in.

A bit of a hullabaloo

The winner says, "And stay out!"



They do make a sweet couple.

Wonderful ducks, nice photos !! Excellent reflections !!

Rose said...

Lucky Duck Reflections! They are great...and love that last shot. They are a handsome couple!

Andrea Priebe said...

You are so lucky to have those Wood Ducks so close that you can get these great captures. Ours are here, but they fly as soon as I get close enough to take their pictures. They actually sit in my neighbors tree. The first time I saw them up there, I thought I was hallucinating ... weird, ducks in a tree. Anyway, great shots ... love the last one.

Andrea @ From The Sol

barbara l. hale said...

A very handsome couple! Terrific series of pics.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, You have pegged that scene well with your captions about those Wood Ducks. Great photography. Have a pleasant weekend!

Nancy J said...

Just like a Monet painting, or that older moire taffeta pattern. Lovely, every one.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Absolutely! Wood ducks are so photogenic!

I forgot to check for my morning critter fix today ... but I just remembered ... and came to see the lovely ducks.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

so beautiful...absolutely unbelievable coloring. I would never get tired of seeing the gorgeous birds.

Red said...

Now my question is do these guys take turns. so is there a fight over each egg? Ducks are great fornicators.

happywonderer.com said...

Beautiful reflections! What a fancy head on that duck. Ours here are less adorned...

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

They look like paintings. :)

Ms. A said...

I absolutely love the reflections and the vivid color of the males, that almost looks unreal.

troutbirder said...


Gorgeous and handsome as they are yes I can take more....:)

KB Bear said...

A beautiful couple! Isn't it weird that, in my mind, I'd changed their name to "Painted Ducks". I didn't even realize it until I read the first line of this post!

Michelle said...

The male looks so perfect he almost doesn't seem real.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I just love their colors and elaborate feathers.

Felicia said...

beautiful ducks and great reflections.

Robin Lamb said...

T, very pretty shots! I love that last one!

Maggid said...

I an completely enchanted by your ducks.

I've watched plenty of artists try for that water/mirror image/reflection thing - golly, you make it look easy . . .

Farm Girl said...

Wow what lovely shots! I love that last one.

Stephanie said...

Awesome reflections!

Ruth Hiebert said...

I always love how the trees look in the water. Turns them into works of art.

Barb said...

You're so lucky to have a wildlife refuge in your back yard! I like Mr and Mrs Duck.

Paul said...

Well isn't that just ducky... :)

I like that last shot of the happy couple!

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Really wonderful reflections, delightful sequence of images!

Randy said...

Sweet little swimmers.

pattisjarrett said...

Looks like a bit of a ruckus--then all's well on the home front.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I think these are wonderful.

Rita said...

Love the sunlight off that green noggin. ;)

Michael Manning said...

Vivid coloring, especially that last shot!

Paula said...

They do make a sweet couple and the one on the right looks artificial.

Beautiful Ducks.

Betty Manousos said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love wood ducks and love wiggly reflections (I take a lot of pictures of the latter --- but never with a wood duck reflection). I'd love to see one in real... high on my bird bucket list ;>)
