Weekend Reflections

These six mallards, three males and three females, swam in front of me to get their picture taken in the Dayton Metroparks.
This is the same pond as above, the six mallards are sitting on the bank to the right.
Weekend Reflections is hosted by James at Newtown Area Photo.

Your first shot with the ducks is lovely, the second one with the tree is beautyful and impressive!

The fist photo has amazing clarity! I love the still water except where the ducks are swimming

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh...how very very pretty those are. I love the texture on the water of the first and the crystal clear reflections of the second.

Both are really nice, Carol, but I LOVE the reflection of the tree in the bottom photo. It speaks to me. :)

Barb said...

Wow - Carol - that reflected tree is fabulous! I had to enlarge for full-effect. The Mallards are very photogenic.

Pat said...

I love how the water is completely still except for the wake made by the swimming ducks. The reflection in the water of the surrounds is just gorgeous, especially the second one.

Two excellent shots Carol. The ducks in formation making their ripples on the glass smooth water, then the reflection of the trees. Not a breeze was stirring that day.

Two breathtaking photos, Carol. Thanks for sharing. Your photography is so inspiring. I'll dash up onto the roof to try and catch the sunset tonight after seeing these calm reflections of yours.

I love ducks -- what they're doing to the water in the top photo is just magical. And that tree in the bottom photo is gorgeous!
