Good Fences #91

Walking out to the barn one afternoon...
the Whistling Ducks were sitting along the fence into the pond as well as the old Cottonwood tree trunk that now rests on it.
I crossed through the fence into the back pasture, and a few flew off into the pond.
 I love these views. :)
Here's the link-up.

A lovely place, and ducks do make wonderful fence decor!

Great views and there is some wonderful light in these photos!

well, there is a purpose with the fallen tree. The ducks like it better then the fence I think.

Oh yes, I'd love those views too, and in that golden light. Isn't it great to live in the country!

I've heard of "ants on a log" - those ducks sure have a nice roost! Your pond was FULL this year! I can't see the tires...lol

Anni said...

Oh my goodness....these images...all of them, are absolutely gorgeous.

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

wonderful capture of Nature's gift. now these are the type of fences i appreciate. the ones built to perch on or sit on and not necessarily to keep something in or something out.

gracias for sharing mi amiga

feliz navidad a ti y tu familia !
