Ducky reflections

So - what is this little guy making all the acrobatics for?

I think he may have spotted something - not to mention someone :-)

The female of the species!

And did it work? Your guess is as good as mine...

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

We have the same ducks here. Love the first photo!
Anna :)

Lew said...

Is he swooning or just a quick wash off the feathers before meeting his lady?

Dina said...

Aww, sweet! I love your ducky post, Rune.

Anne said...

Må nesten le, men det ser nesten ut som om den første her ler litt av deg :-) Legger hodet litt på skakke og tenker, du og du som han roter med innstillingene da, he he

Men jammen fant du de rette Rune for disse bildene var flotte. Ser på det siste her og tenker at naturen er jammen gjennomtenkt på en måte? gjennomtenkt, kan man si det? for en ser hva fargene passer sammen, se på den damen som hun er helt i ett med omgivelsene, flott da gitt!!

God helg til deg Rune, endelig ble det da fredag. Anneklem på vei.

Neat photos and commentary AND I love those swirls in the water captured by your camera!

Irene said...

Vært i "Andeby"? Flott serie, med glade farger og fine refleksjoner.

Ha en fin dag ... klem fra vinterDrammen

In every kind of creature, the "men" play to be Tarzan to seduce their ladies:))

How romantic! The first photo is my favourite.

Love the rusty photo too - beautiful colours and composition.

Cezar and Léia said...

This is such a romantic post!
I think this couple is luck to have each other, and they can enjoy this peaceful lake together!
Adorable pictures with so wonderful and delicate reflections...double reflections!
Hugs

Looks like you are enjoying the new camera. Girls & boys; doesn't matter if they are ducks, they're still the same!

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

En ekstra fjærpuss reddet nok freddan hans :) Veldig fine bilder av dem!

Riktig god helg Rune!

Og skulle du kjede deg i helgen så har jeg snø nok til at vi kan lage flere snømenner, hehe.

Tulsa Gentleman said...

Ahh, the things we do for love. It is the same the world over for ducks and for humans - love makes the world go around.

Sylvia K said...

Terrific captures, Rune, I love the ducks and, yes, the things we do for love regardless of which critter we are! Have a great weekend!

'Tsuki said...

Beautiful set of pictures... The first one is the one I find the most impressive : your camera is stunningly precise in details...

John said...

Rune, the outcrops on the Namibia shot are natural.

Maboe said...

Så flotte bilder, du må jo være fornøyd med det nye kameraet, vil jeg tro....

Dave said...

what a story to tell RuneE, such a wonderful creature.

i love the first Mallard shot!

Hans HB said...

Flotte stokkandbilder, både av steggen og frua!!
Stegen har nå begynt å få sin vanlige drakt tilbake etter mytinga i sommer...

Clytie said...

We have so many ducks around that I forget how fun they are - how beautiful they are - and what wonderful photo subjects they make! Thank you for the gorgeous shots, and the reminder!

Ebie said...

Rune, how romantic, watching her go, and "walk" hand in hand.

Terrific captures!

Greyscale Territory said...

Gorgeous watery reflections! But I especially love the acrobatics captured in the first photo!

EG Wow said...

The first duck must be a contortionist! :)

Shirley said...

How cute. He is quite the little courter!

Marka said...

Great mini-series!

cieldequimper said...

Ooh I just love that first shot. Marvellous as always.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

What a funny duck in that first photo! Your water reflections are lovely, but that b/w boat (Saturday's post) is just stunning!

Radka said...

Fabulous page! Very beautiful photos :)).

Wonderful photos! I am one month into my first Dslr, a T2i younger brother to your 7D, and it is a heck of a challange. Your eye is first rate. Thank you for blogging!
