D is for Ducks
This week’s letter assignment is the letter D~
Fall is my favorite time of year at the lake. . . it will be a couple more weeks before the leaves change so no beautiful leaves to show you yet. Other than the beautiful color and cooler temps, the other reason it is my favorite season is the fact that most everyone has taken their boat out of the water, and is gone ’til Memorial Day next year. That’s just ducky with me~
So it’s just us and the ducks for the most part. . .
“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.”
Just ducky is right. These are beautiful, Mary. I love the Michael Caine quote.
Our leaves are beginning to change, here, still a couple of weeks away from peak. I posted a couple of shots from last year. Not sure if ours will be as beautiful this year. So far they don’t look as brilliant. I love this time of year!
Great photo’s…the lake feels like a wonderful peaceful place to visit!
Oh, what a great quote! and so true. Who doesn’t love ducks!
Fabulous photos !
We’ve had a huge amount of rain in the past week and our ducks love it. They woke me in the wee hours with their splashing in the pond – a midnight swim!
what a cute post, we share the same love of fall, and solitude! darling pics, i could watch them for hours~
Darling photos! ACL is going on here this weekend so there are thousands of extra people in town. We can hear the bands and the crowds, and we are miles away from the venue. Solitude ~ sounds heavenly! Enjoy your autumn days on the water with the ducks. ~ Sarah
I came here from Lola’s blog. I noticed your comment because of the Bichons. We have a 12 year old Bichon named Ruby and Rusty, a terrier mix. Your photos are fabulous.
What fun!!!! Ducks are indeed, Ducky! Such fun to watch .. the little beggars! :D :D :D
the ducks must LOVE this time of year ~ they can cross the lake without fear of getting run over!
I love your duck mosaics! This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada, the weekend many boaters take theirs out of the water for the winter.
What fun mosaics! My 2 year old was sitting on my lap while looking at tonights mosaics and she has picked yours as her favorite! LOL
Oh those ducks are so pretty and so energetic and I don’t think I can ever be like a duck though I’d like to try.
Oh, what cute mosaics!!! thanks for sharing at MM. :)
Beautiful shots. Something about these white ducks that are so very cute :)
Oh, this is the most darling mosaic!!
Be a sweetie,
Love the ducks :) Fun mosaics!
Great shots of the ducks — too bad they don’t come with sound effects.
Good photos, fun to see and a nice mosaic. Have a great week!
Great photos of the ducks. The mosaics are wonderful. Take care:)
Lovely photos, and great quote! :)
Those photos are so darned cute! I love the one of the three white ducks paddling in a circle. The Michael Caine quote is perfect ;)
awwww sweet mosaic duckies. I think they’re so gracefull.
Great mosaic … just too cute!
They all look like such happy ducks! I love the quote and all your fun mosaics, Mary!
What a lovely mosiac. Have a great week.
Love the ducks, wonderful mosaic!
Great job of photographing the ducks.
Just saw your last post on your wine themed table. Love it – So pretty!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciated the comments and Ruby thanks you for the birthday wishes.
Pretty – and I’m “just ducky” with summer being over, too! :I)Nancy
That really was just ducky. :-) I just love the ripples the make in the water.
I loved your duck show today. You got some great shots.
They are so cute and what a great macro of the white one. Beautiful mosaics.
Beautiful photos and mosaic.
Love this!!!!!! I had a ‘quacking’ good time viewing all the collages!!
My watery photos are shrimp boats coming in and a sailboat going out. Do stop by if you get a chance.
Love the ducks in the photo. My son has ducks on his pond and would not speak so kindly of them. Great quote.
Adore ducks – and Michael Caine’s words of advice!
I love ducks and can relate to calm on the surface paddling like mad under water.
Feel free to pop by
I love the “be like a duck” quote! I may have to make it my new motto. Your lake sounds like a bit of heaven. Enjoy the peace of having it all to yourselves (and the ducks, of course).
I have seen that Michael Caine quote somewhere recently. Good advice!!
Really wonderful photography of the ducks and composition of the mosaic is more than just ‘Ducky’! Nice post for the Letter D….Sue
Great shots! Just looking at them makes me feel a little calmer…
Loved it all! The photos are superb and the quote so true!
Thanks for sharing;o)
Have a nice day*******
the white ducks looks like swans, such nice whiteness
These are wonderful. I love how the ducks look like they are communicating with each other.
I just love the duckies! Your pictures of them are perfect!
I love ducks too! They are just ducky and darling! Thanks for sharing this and your photos are terrific! Please come join me too. Anne
Such pretty duckies! We have mostly only the brown ducks here and big honking messy geese! LOL! I have seen a white family of ducks a few years ago but haven’t seen them in awhile. I love the white ones. We also enjoy this time of year on the lake when the majority of the boaters pull out for the winter. It’s like a breath of fresh air!
those are great shots. i love the quote too.
Ducks just quack me up! Darling post!
I’ve come to realize that ducks wear dog masks :D
Have a great day!
Quite ducky! I loved all the happy ducks!
Love those ducks…
I love the white ducks. They look so beautiful (for a duck). Lol. Good shots. Happy Alphabe Thursday!
My grandkids love to feed the ducks! And my kids used to love it, too.
Love the good advice! Just stopping by from Alphabe-Thursday to say Hey! Am following you on GFC; would love a follow back!
So sorry! couldn’t find your GFC! Will stop back by though. Love your blog!
What a fun stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday’s letter “D”!
That duck quote totally ‘quacked’ me up.
And the duck pictures were great.
My husband would say the only thing better than this post would be a glazed duck breast in plum sauce for dinner.
But I just say, this was great!
Wonder pictures of the ducks. My daughter has 5 ducks that she raised from ducklings. Afraid a couple have become quite the bullies to the smaller ones.
As always, stunning pictures of the goings on at the lake.
‘Ducks, Ducky’ are excellent D-word! Lovely photos of your feathered friends!
Thank you for visiting my D-post! I had trouble finding your post until i returned to Jenny Matlock’s page.
Please return to my D-post as i have added another dog!
