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.

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

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

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

  31. 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
