Amerrissage de canards, contrejour sur les canards...


Ducks on ice and landing in the clear water of the Swiss lake last Sunday.

Nice shooting, Ciel. Boy that looks cold, though!

I especially like the top photo with the birds both in the foreground and in the background where they are on the ice. It provides many layers of feeling to absorb.

When they saw how cold it is, the ducks said "time to get quacking"...

Sorry.
«Louis» begs forgiveness for his horrible pun...

Ducks are funny when walking on ice. They even look surprised. MB

Beautiful atmospheric backlit subjects. Again, this season has its highlights and it is absolutely fantastic, as you show. An enjoyable Tuesday for you.

Je prefere quand meme les cygnes ! Mais les canards sont pas mal en silhouette.

I like amerrissage at least as abeille, it is a thing of sound, I don't know why...
I spend some time watching gulls doing the same at sea, while I wait for the passing boats and relax.

Beautiful images of these wonderful characterful birds. Nice to see the ice melting, spring is in the air - maybe!!??

Pour des "canards glacés".
La première photo, on dirait un 4 de pic.

Tres jolis ces canards sur cet etang avec une belle lumiere. Belle photo de cygnes plus bas aussi.

wow! :)
It reminds me some ducks that I saw in Paris, hey Ciel...you gave me a cool idea for a nice story in Luna's blog! Thanks sweetie! :)
***I got a big smile with your comment about the "traineau"! LOL
You are right!
We found Prague and Cesky Krumlov with winter mood and lots of snow!
