Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Ducks for Memes

(The ducks are for these memes today:  Wordless Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, ABC Wednesday the letter D, Weekend Reflections, and World Bird Wednesday)! (Check out these world wide photo blogging sites where bloggers share beautiful photos.)














We can identify the ducks in the comments if you wish as I am trying to be a little bit wordless.

Great captures. Each one a delight.

You manage to DO so many memes and yet keep to their themes (so many do not). Bravo.

Amazing duck photos.

VioletSky said...

These are amazing shots.
I am otherwise speechless!

Great selection.

Wood Duck, Wigeon, Ring Billed Duck, Mallard, Bufflehead, I think.

Springman said...

Quack!
What a show! As ridiculous as ducks strike me, there are those magnificent iridescent plumages to pay homage to. Truly a spectacular fool!

Wow, these are awesome. The real closeup of the one is kinda scary. He looks like he's say, "Go ahead, make my day!"

Excellent photos! Love the Ring-necked Ducks!

Great captures! I love the way you have gotten in close so we can see the details of the feathers! I can't decide whether my favourite is the guy stretching, or the last one, where he is splashing...

Nancy Reinke said...

These are incredible. You captured these beautiful ducks perfectly. Love them.

Genie said...

I was so awed by your duo pictures, I screamed for my husband to...’Come here right now! You have got to see this.” Your captures are unbelievable. How in the world did you manage to take such close up shots? They are all so pretty in their own ways. The colorations are amazing. My favorite one has to be the one at the end that is splashing in the water. What a fab capture. Kudos to you. genie
