The couple next door

A sweet, late afternoon sight at the nearby pond. It's nice to be back home after last week's work travel!

Travelling for work is almost as good as travelling for play, right?? Love those reflections - and the colours in the water!!

I love the clarity of those ducks contrasted with the ripples of reflection in the water!

Looks like synchronised paddling, both their heads are turned just so. What colours!

You have handsome neighbors who live in a lovely place. I never minded travel for work. It broke the routine.

Quite a pair! We have some who stay over the winter in open water areas, but most will be on their way back from down south in the coming weeks.

Adele said...

Welcome home! Your neighbors look they might be a bit noisy (which I would love), but oh so sweet!

Wonderful shot! And what a coincidence: I saw a couple of these ducks on the stream that crosses Oeiras on my way home from the daily walk. :-)
