The Mallards are happy to have water in the clearwater ditch again.
Jake was having a ball running and shaking on the beach.

Thank you, Tim, for demonstrating that there is many ways to look at our world. Spectacular photos. Love those cranes in the trees.
You are welcome, Rebecca. Thanks for stopping in.
Ah, to be a stately crane in the forest feeling the leaves beneath my talons. Lovely photograph, Timothy.
those teeth and tongue shots… looks like he got dinner of one of those bottoms up birds… the better get their heads out of the water.. lol 🤣
Jake was having a fun romp. He was over here and then at Laurie’s parents’ house, so poor guy was late for dinner. Thanks, Cindy.
I can see that!! Alright he’s off the hook then for accusations of duck dinnerZ 😂
I captured clouds like yours this morning. It was a fabulous sight 🙂
It’s all butts about bottoms up. That’s good you got something for all your slip sliding away. Thanks, Dale.
Fun stuff. I’m suffering for it, lemme tell you. Ugh.
I hope you get too feeling better soon.
I will. Thank you for being so sweet.
Looks like everyone is having a fantastic time. Lovely pics, Tim.
You’re welcome, Tim.
A beautiful set of photos from your day, Tim. The group of upended mallards brought a chuckle.
The Mallards were enjoying themselves. Thanks, Lavinia.
Your mallard photos are exactly what I saw at the lake today. I was taking photos from a long distance, so I’m pretty sure that mine didn’t turn out like these. It was fun to watch and hear them flap along the water as they took off. A beautiful and fun set of photos. 🙂
Thanks, Rebecca. Mallards act like Mallards wherever they are.
Love the pictures.
You are welcome.
Everyone was out enjoying the beautiful day. Thanks for sharing with us, Tim. It is most appreciated.
You are welcome, Juanita. Besides being a little on the cool side, it was a very nice day to be out in the bosque.
Funny title. Synchronized swimming! I love the earthy golds in your beautiful photos.
Thanks, Michele. Ducks originated synchronized swimming.
Just one word: Joy (for everyone involved… viewer included!)
Just beautiful. Love them all but the cranes one so made me smile.
Cranes have a way of doing that. Thanks, shey.
it is a super capture.
Fun and beauty – all it needs for happiness in your photos.
You live in an incredible place ~ beautiful shots of living 🙂 Cheers to the day ahead!
Thanks, Randall. It’s our little piece of paradise.
Loving the energy here, and those stupendous skies.
Thanks, Lizzy. It’s overcast this morning. It would be nice if we got some rain.
The second cloud formation is wonderful, Timothy. Beautiful pictures.
Great wildlife, Tim.
Perfect timing on the Mallards. Made us smile!
They were syncing very well. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
This isn’t the first appearance of Jake. Is he a Price family member? 🙂
He’s Tristan’s dog. Thanks, David.
The grandson … (LOL) 🙂
Pretty much. He’s a really good dog.
All good, Sir. Love the mallards.
Nice! Yes, there is a pure joy that dogs enjoy, we could all use a lesson from them! And those mallards look quite happy as well, thanks for the smiles, Tim!
You are welcome, Tiffany. We need more smiles and dog-like happiness.
So many fun photos here, I find it so funny when all the ducks or geese are tail feathers up and your pup photos are just wonderful. Love seeing dogs having fun. 😉
Love the bottoms up!
I just saw hundreds of Canadian Geese on the lake (yes we are back in Pennsylvania) and no one had their bottom up. So thank you!
Silly geese. You are Welcome. Thanks, Nancy.
I always tell Linda when the Mallards make the pose in your first image they are really just telling me what they think of my photography skills ha!
That’s a good point.
Again! Fabulous photography. Great work!!
What a bunch of wonderful shots, Tim!
LOL… love the mallards!
Jake is a hoot.
Nature is a teeming team where you live.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Resa. Nature abounds.
Hey Tim what a great collection! Cute bottom shot … As for Jake, he sure looks like he’s having fun
Jake is a fun loving dog. Thanks, Julie.
