What a lovely reflection! I always love to see animals in photos, they never pose or shy away they are just themselves.

Thanks so much.

They're nice with green peas, especially on the BBQ.

Dagrun said...

Stakkars små, de fryser de også.

Flott og enkel komposisjon, Rune, hvilket vi er vant til fra deg! :)

webruci said...

This is outstanding! The colors, the reflection, the ducks all is Perfect!!!
It is a great image Rune.
..and they have not cold:)

Malyss said...

John is awful!Ü
Your four ducks make me think of a song for kids: "they were one, two three , four.."
Nice light and quiet scenery..

SparkleFarkle said...

A simply ducky tribute to the letter "F"!

Spiderdama said...

Flott F også så skjønne da! Herlig bilde og refleksjon!

Amy said...

Four is a good number (for ducks) and the reflection on the water is stunning!

Sylvia K said...

And what a lovely "four" they are! Marvelous capture as always, Rune. Hope you are having a great week!

Det er ikke så mye ledig vann for dem nå om dagen, så der det er åpent må være et eldorado. Nydelige speilinger i vannet og fir fine ducks :)

Johnny Nutcase said...

i love the way the water looks in this photo- great coloring. Nice shot!

Tunes Photo said...

Så det er der de er! Jeg har lurt på hvor alle endene blir av nå som det ikke er ferskvann å oppdrive.

Det ser kaldt ut. Men det virker som om den modigste av dem forsiktig forsøker å kjenne på vannet med føttene. Stilig!

Irene said...

Kald fornøyelse for 4 små fjærkledte. Og så bade nå da gitt!

photowannabe said...

Perfect reflection shot. It certainly gives the feeling of chilly water for the four ducks.

jabblog said...

Just beautiful! Four very handsome ducks in bright water. I love the reflections.

Leslie: said...

Fabulous! :D

imac said...

Just love that Golden shimmer.

Rafael said...

i love the water's reflection and the ducks showing their splendor and colours

I have never had a duck to eat. I remember during the war we had a duck somebody got hunting and brought it to us to eat and mother fixed it. She said it was good. I did have to taste it but that was it. Never forgot the taste and never tasted duck again.

Manang Kim said...

Great shot!!

F is Family

Viola said...

Icy and sunny? Solnedgang kanskje? Vakkert bilde som alltid! Det er bra at ikke hele fjorden/sjøen er islagt, at de finner åpent vann! Stilig med den "snøballen" som ligger oppe på isflaten! :)

Stan Ski said...

Great photography.

Carolyn Ford said...

I love the golden and silvery reflections and the ducks are just as cute as can be. This is such a nice photograph, as always.

lynnwiles said...

Very pretty reflections, the ducks look cold, but the water looks warm. Are they your namesake eider ducks?

Beverley Baird said...

Lovely photo - such a gorgeous view of the water and ducks! Not a fjord?

AVCr8teur said...

I like the golden reflection. You almost had 3 ducks as one wanders off from the crowd. :)

Tumblewords: said...

A beautiful reflection for the four!

Hildred and Charles said...

Great reflections and a sweet duck ensemble.

angelcel said...

What beautiful light on the water!

LeAnn * ~ See Great Things said...

Oh, I like these four! They look beautiful on this water.

Jama said...

Beautiful photography!

raf said...

When I read your title with four, I thought oh, oh Rune has already posted four pix for F. Your ducks look great in reflection!

Paulie said...

Great catch! Beautiful photo, like usual.

wenn said...

lovely!

Alice said...

Lovely birds and cool reflection!

onangelwings said...

Gattina said...

What a gorgeous picture !

Kate said...

The play of light on the water is great. Makes it look like it's warmer than what it is, I'd bet!

Monika said...

gorgeous

Lucy Corrander said...

Humourful and startles my eyes.

Reader Wil said...

Hi Rune! This photo is promising spring, though I know that ducks don't mind cold weather. My grandchildren from Australia were delighted to see the ducks wobbling on the ice, when they were staying with me in December 2003 and January 2004.

Anne-Berit said...

Nydelige fugler,men det ser svinaktig kaldt ut.Flott skinn i is og vann på bildet,lekkert.:)

Paulie said...

Just a comment about your comment on my blog . . . the stairs you liked so much IS A WATER FOUNTAIN too! Did you realize that?

Anne said...

katney said...

They go perfectly with my "D"!

Chie Wilks said...

Mine is up too, it is here. I hope you can visit.

dana said...

What cute ducks! Very creative!

becky at abbeystyle said...

like water for chocolate...melted chocolate or liquid mercury...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It never ceases to amaze me that they swim in such frigid water!

RennyBA's Terella said...

Lovely reflection Rune! Shows the golden beauty of nature!

Roger Owen Green said...

four fine fowl.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

Ida said...

Overgangen mellom vann og is "smelter" sammen her. Det ser ut som fuglen i front går på vannet...
Morsomt! :)
