  4. My friend Bob,

    The first photo is my son's favorite photo.
    And I must say that your latest posts are more spiritually than ever.

    I wish you a happy new week.

  11. I love wood ducks, but they don't want to come out much. This Mandarin is wonderful. Well done, Bob.

  12. Great shots, Bob. Along with Wood Duck surely the world's most spectacular ducks. Within a month or so Wood Ducks will be common here.

  22. Chez les oiseaux, très souvent, les femelles sont moins colorées, ornées de plumages voyants que les mâles. C'est en somme, le contraire chez les humains, à part exceptions. Pourtant cette femelle Mandarin a beaucoup de charme et ta photo sait le montrer avec art. Merci pour cet envoi, mon cher Bob.
    Amitiés.
