  2. They are strange ducks, aren't they? I think my favorite is the picture where he is standing on the water bucket. I also like the pair, I don't think I have seen a pair together before, now I will know the difference....well, usually the male is the most brightly colored, but maybe in this case it's the female? Phil and his brothers had some as teenagers, their dad ordered a bunch

  3. They are lovely! I went out for a nice long walk today, as the temperatures here were comfortable. It was great! I went to a nature park and saw a couple of alpacas, some horses, goats and ducks, geese and seagulls. It was fantastic! The walk in nature and the fresh air did me good. :)

  5. I had a friend who described these as 'unfinished'. When I asked why she remarked that they reminded her of unfinished paintwork. Strange person!

  6. that first shot is awesome. our Muscovy here don't have as much black and white, they are more like the sold black in the second pic...

  7. They're always such a 'silent' bird. And a wonderful part of our nature ... great images Denise.

  9. Very nice! I remember a collection took up refuge around Lake Siri one winter. People would bring them some scratch feed (I did this, too).

    But that winter was so harsh, one by one they disappeared.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
