Tranquil Moments

There is a lot of action at the ponds lately , what with territorial spats, breeding displays and mating. The waters are stirred up and it is a challenge to get a shot with all the birds in the frame.I like these action shots but I also like the quieter ones, when there are tranquil  moments when the birds are relaxed in calm waters. Today I will share some of these moments. Do you have your favourite ones?

  2. First I’d like to say how delightful it is to not see any ice in the pond. 🙂 I loved the beautiful reflections that the water fowl made on the water’s surface. I think the final photo was my favorite, partly because it is an unfamiliar duck for me.

  3. Yes! No ice-amazing change, isn’t it! This is a female Goldeneye, there is a picture of the pair of them on my header-finally let go of the winter scene. 🙂

  4. YAY winter has finally released it’s icy grip. Super photos and I think my favorite shot/shots would be the last two. I’ve never seen these two species in person.
