Would she know what to do if she caught one?
Hi Alex,Absolutely NOT! :-)Dix
Those feathers are so beautiful - great photography. We had a dog that used to chase the squirrels - she never caught one (it was probably for the best).
Hi Joy,I will have to try and photograph one of the males, they are so colourful. These are all females, one mum and 6 babies. We saw them from when they were days old. There were 7 initially, one was a boy and he has taken off, just the girls left. It's one of my favourite annual events!Hope you are well.DiX
I agree with c. Joy. Amazing shots, Di! I almost smelled the water.
Thanks Suze, John bought me a new telephoto lens for Christmas and I'm playing with it more and more. I'm usually just taking shots of antiques so this was a nice change from the norm!DiX
Hi DiThat must be amusing and an ongoing saga. Our former dog, Digger one time chased a deer and then the fawn appeared in our dog's path. Luckily a farmer was working our field and he was able to grab Digger in time. The photos are beautiful and such clear water.Helenxx
Hi Helen,It is funny, Sooke hates them, thy eat bread she could be eating and she gets very jealous. Typical terrier :-)DiX
Lovely clear photos Di, I'd forgotten the intensity of that coloured patch. We used to have ducks as visitors in our fishpond at our last house, and while interesting and amusing, they left large desposits of sh*t everyewhere, but I expect you don't have that problem.I hope Sookie can swim.
Hey TSB,We also get quite an accumulation of duck poop on the pontoons. You count yourself unlucky too if the local seagull population decide to use your boat for target practice. It was our tun last week! Pesky flying rats - I love them :-)DiX
Hello Di! I hope that as you are up cavorting with the neighbors that you are feeling better.Thank you for coming to visit! I have notice La Porte Rouge on your blog roll, Nadia is a gem! I love her photos! Makes me want to live on a farm, except I am afraid to be alond on a 100 acres with wolves and other creatures!I hope you have a wonderful time at the graduation! Photos please!Take care, love the images of the duck feathers.xo Elizabeth
Hi Elizabeth,I am a million times better thanks. It was not a nice one!I promise I will take grad photos on Thursday. It will be a really special post!Enjoy your week lovely one.DiX
Oh no. I hope they don't end up as doggy food.
Hi Loree,No, she wouldn't dare and I'm not sure she would know what to do with one if she did get lucky :-)Thanks for stopping by.DiX
Poor Snooky..lucky ducks.
Hi Mary,I don't know about poor Sooky, it would be poor duck if she ever managed to catch one! They are way to clever for her thankfully :-)DiX
Seriously. You could publish a photography coffee table book. Beautiful (and hilarious) pics!
Thank you Marianne,I am totally blown away by your comment :-)DiX
I agree with Marianne. Great photography! The pictures tell a story without anything being said.
Hi CYW,I think I might do a series with Sookie the Evil Genius. You should see her eat fruit. What do you think?DiX
those are amazing photographs (detail, focus and color) - I've seen you a bunch of places I go and we aren't following each other? I think we should. I'm hoping over to join you right now. (hug) ps. Mary at merrydotdandy is my sister!!!!! really!!!!
Hi Renae,Great to meet you. I loved your BR reunion story and look forward to more.DiX
HI!!!OH MAN that was close!!!!I have only eaten duck once...oh make that twice.....in PARIS....me and 2 of the girls decided to SPLURGE and have lunch at the RITZ in Paris......lunch was 125.00 EUROS!!!!That included Champagne...not a bottle just 1 glass each....but that mEAL was a Feast for the stomach, and the eyes.....so DUCK was on the menu they served us...I think in Course 2 or 3.....there were at least 5 courses!!!hugs,jamie
Hi Jamie,Firstly, Happy Birthday to your lovely son!Dinner at the Ritz in Paris - wow, that's something you don't get to do every day! unless maybe you are Mohamed Al Fayed :-). Expensive yes, but once in a lifetime.If Sookie had caught a duck I don't know that I would look that forward to eating it because one, i would be upset at what she had done and boy, would she know about it and, two, I find duck a little too greasy for my liking :-)Have a great week.DiX
hahaha...too funny. The look on Sookie's face in the one picture is almost a look for approval to pounce on the ducks!
Hi hi-d,She is a funny pooch. That look says "OK, I won't get too close" as I had just yelled at her to "LEAVE IT" :-). She is a little unpredictable and can sometimes forget herself. We were out in the dinghy once and a duck came a bit close so she jumped in and started to swim after it! She then realised what she had done and with sheer panic on her face turned and sped the other way. Where was my camera then? :-)DiX
n i c e!!!!!! and Sookie's thinking yum yum!!!! Gorgeous post Di. A bientot.
Hello Di,thanks for visting... How sweet is that... lovely ducks and great photographys :-) but poor and funny Sookiemany greetings, Bine
I've never seen a dog eat a feathered creature. I don't think they know how to pluck them.
DI MY DEAR! I have missed you so! How did I miss this post?....I know, I have been crazy busy over here!Oh these are hilarious photos and Sookie looks like she is READY for some culinary lessons on how to cook DUCK!!!!!I hope you are well my friend! Anita
looking at your pics in this post reminds me that i am definitely in need of a good camera.love the duckiesAND sookie!oh yes....and you most of all!xox
Poor Sookie looks so forlorn. And those ducks look so smug.
Greetings Di!Thanks very much for your visit! So delighted to find you and Sookie!! I don't know....those ducks look pretty tough. Might be the other way: Ducks eating Sookie ;-)Cheers from DC,LoiPS - Your photos are amazing! Such clarity....really nice.
Thank you for following me and thank you for your comments!!! That's sad about how families do that after years go by, huh? I hope I can stay close to my Mom's family. She would want that like no other. Looking forward to a great blogging relationship with YOU!
Di,Sweet little Sookie pictures are always so enjoyable. And that third one has such an intensity about it, I love it. Yep, you had better get the sauce on because from what I am seeing there is some real determination at work here. Hoping all is well and good on Cardiff Bay with you and yours. – gary
