La faune locale

Without further ado, let me introduce you to some of Marie-Antoinette's hamlet current dwellers...
-----------------------
Sans plus attendre, permettez-moi de vous présenter la faune locale au Hameau de la Reine...

Oh, very nice. Lovely reflection in the first shot.

Woody said...

It must be quite nice in the duck social circuit to have such a prestigious address :-) Very nice!

Randy said...

Nice place to hang out for people and ducks. Nice photos.

EG Wow said...

I bet there were ducks there in Marie Antoinette's time too. Watching ducks in a pond can be so wonderfully relaxing.

Bob Crowe said...

And, fortunately for them, they have not been made into dinner (although does anyone eat koi?). Like the color divisions.

Alain Alexandre said...

tu fais bien de présenter la tribu sans eux nous sommes perdu. charme de versaillais.

Olivier said...

on attend la suite du safari local ;) (je crois que l'on doit avoir les mêmes spécimens d'animaux sauvages ;))

T. Becque said...

Exactly what I would picture in a ladie's pond!

Small City Scenes said...

Ah, they are just so cute. Quack Quack!! MB

Cergie said...

Permets moi de te dire que ce n'est pas parce que ce sont des canards qu'il faut les traiter de zonards ni de faune !
En Pennsylvanie exactement les même sont des male et female mallard. D'ailleurs on voit bien que le mle n'a pas encore tout à fait son plumage nuptial...

Cergie said...

A propos de la flore locale du potager du roi (les lupins), tu crois pas qu'elle a des serviteurs qui lui changent sa terre et la ressèment régulièrement, qui la chouchoute quoa ? Je suis à la fois jardinière, cuisinière, femme de charge à tout faire quoi de mon petit royaume, alors il m'arrive d'avoir des faiblesses.

Je sais pas pourquoi, je trouve toujours que les canards ont une tête sympathique! ils sont rigolos, on ne les imagine pas méchants..On n'en a pas par ici:((

VP said...

The perfect complement for such a nice pond.

JM said...

This collage reminds me of some of the subjects in the traditional japanese paintings. It's beautiful!

B SQUARED said...

She had such a difficult life. Too bad it had to be "cut" short.

Leif Hagen said...

They look like happy, peaceful royals!

Tracy said...

Oh, I especially love the fish in the first photo!

LD said...

Lovely collage that complements your previous scene nicely!

Francisca said...

B Squared gave me my last laugh today... I agree with everyone else. Sweet. And Malyss made me think whether I've seen ducks in the Philippines... and I don't think I have! But in China, yes... as you now know. :-D

Tammie Lee said...
