Reflective splash

Mallards dive for food also in the winter.



James at Newtown Area Photo has a meme called Weekend Reflections. Post a reflection during the week-end, log on to MckLinky via his site - and you're on.

It looks as if the Mallard is mildly interested in a work of sculpture rather than an option for food.

Lovely colours and patterns.

The loveliest splash I've ever seen! Ü

Anne said...

NYDELIGE farger på bildet ditt Rune, ble glad og våken bare av å betrakte det kjære venn. Noen er heller ikle så kjælen, så en dukkert ble det jaggu :-)

Benken min ligger der nå om du vil se, ikke så spennde kanskje men..., en benk.
Fin fredag kveld til deg. Klem.

Artig blikk på den anden! Som om hun er høyt hevet over at andre jobber for føden.

Riet said...

What a lovely picture. Great reflection

Carolyn Ford said...

How skilled you are to be quick enough to catch that! What a wonderful reflection of the splash...The other mallard is just casually floating along while observing the goings on...Gotta love this one!

Great reflection! Love the duck!

Dina said...

Wowee! The water splash has the shape of the tail and the duck's rear end; gives the impression of a transparent spirit-Mallard or something!
I love this picture.

Var fristet til å skrive at her har du skutt gullfuglen, men den kan kanskje missforstås litt siden det bare er en and igjen og en vannsprut høyt til værs :) Men at det var god fangst med kamera er det ingen tvil om, knallskudd!

God helg Rune :)

Gärdsmygen said...

Snyggt!

awarewriter said...

Not to mention the collar too!
