Everyone pays attention to the male Wood Duck, but the female is beautiful in her own right, just a little more subdued.

Linda W. said...

Those ducks and turtles seem to get along nicely.

Linda said...

We have mallards near our home but i don't recall seeing them fly up high like that. Perhaps I need to watch more carefully.

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, I sure enjoyed the photos. A few days ago I had a group of birds fly over my place ... sort of like your Mallards photo ... but I didn't have my camera ready and they were gone too fast. I would love to get a photo like your Mallards. Thanks for sharing. Hope you've had a happy weekend and wishing you a fine week ahead.

The Yum List said...

At first I thought that log was a gator in the water! Hope you had a lovely weekend Eileen, and wishing you a great week ahead.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Hi Eileen! Its been too long - As you know life has kept me away from blogging, and I'm making a goal and hoping I can keep caught up on reading blogs like yours who I really miss.

I enjoyed your photos from Florida, and the ones from this post too. How fun to see the mallards and turtles are always good for a grin.

I hope you are well, and "having fun" even if our weather isn't the best.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Nice to see the Mallards and turtles enjoying a beautiful day! Thanks for hosting, Eileen. Hope your week ahead is a good one. xx Karen

Hi Eileen, I am glad you photographed the Wood Duck. Such a pretty duck! Have a great day tomorrow!

Florence said...

So many beautiful creatures! I tangled yesterday with a decidedly unlovely creature though. An asp fell out of the oak tree under which I was peacefully sitting and reading. Ouch!!

Marvelous like always! Great work!
