Q is for Quack in ABC Wednesday

I was out strolling today. In the back of my mind the letter Q was a passenger - in the vain hope that a bright thought might occur. Nothing happened until I suddenly heard: "Quack-quack"

No problem.

Quack No. 1


Quack No. 2


Quacks Nos. 1 & 2



Today's post is part of the the third round of ABC Wednesday. The founder, Denise Nesbitt, has changed the rules to make the system more practical. There is now a no-comment blog where you can post a copy or short version of your post with a link-back to your original post for the full version and comments. Scanning through this no-comment blog will give you lots of Quaint Qs. She has also set up a site where you can log on via Mr. Linky if you want to do that.

Fine bilder av fine fugler. Vi hadde et halvtamt andepar som kom opp til huset vårt hver vår og tigget mat. Sikkert mens de hadde tatt seg fri fra by'n og for å hekke i litt mer landlige omgivelset.

Ducks to your rescue, RuneE!
Beautiful ones. Do they really say quack in Norwegian too? :)

Reader Wil said...

I don't know how you do it! But every time I visit your blog your photos are getting even more beautiful, which is almost impossible. I love your Quacks and they look exactly like ours. Thank you for visiting. I am going to answer commenters on my blog in future too.

That water is fabulous! Such a gorgeous reflection.

It drove me quackers to get here. Mr linky is taking everyone to the P . post. The ducks are crystal clear and the water has a beautiful sheen.

photowannabe said...

Quite quaint quackers. Great post Runee.

The colors on these "quackers" are beautiful! So pretty! An amusing post but effective for the ABC Wednesday!

Tash said...

They are just beautiful and beautifully photographed with the light on the water and the colors of the ducks.
Now, what does a Norweigan duck say? Quakk, quakk?
BTW - a phd & a wonderful photographer - so accomplished!

Gordon said...

You have some colourful quackers there; nice shots.

Så fine biler. Jeg likte at det nesten føltes som om det var bevegelse i vannet omkring dem. Flott levert. Ha en fin dag:)

Bear Naked said...

The male drake certainly doesn't have to QUACK too loudly to get any attention.
He is stunning.

Queer sound! In French,our ducks say:"Coin! Coin!"(For "C"post !)
Gorgeous colours and reflections !

Miss_Yves said...

"Quaint" sound was that I meant, of course!

Dragonstar said...

Beautiful, clear, colourful photos. What a great idea you had.

Thanks for your comment.

nonizamboni said...

Very clever fellows -- you and the ducks! Lovely photos as well.
Happy Wedneday!

Louis la Vache said...

...just don't QUACK up on us, Runee!

Kerri said...

Oh, beautiful ducks!!

GAWO said...

Det første bilde synes jeg er skikkelig fint. Jeg var en tur langs Storetveitvannet her en søndag og tok noen bilder av de fuglene som var der. Men fikk ikke til noe så fint som dette.

Anne-Berit said...

Flotte bilder som vanlig fra deg Rune.Nydelige fugler også:o)

PERBS said...

Beautiful ducks! I have got to get out on more walks to see "ours." Trying to feel better after being sick with a 24 hour bug I guess. I have never thrown up so much in my life! lol Just what you wanted to hear.

Regarding moon shots . . . are you using a flash? Mine turn out all blurry if I don't use the flash. On my camera, it slows down the shot and sometimes the moon has gone behind another cloud and all I have left is a black sky! I think it is a full moon tonight. . . try again.

kml said...

Will they stay during the winter too? Love the green colors in the head!

kml said...

Wow - the Mallards that we have around here leave for the winter. Very interesting!

Barbara Martin said...

Very nice to see Mallards in your part of the world.
