A room of ones own

These two were very set on their own private pools:



Very close to the puddles is an absolutely stunning pond - but perhaps the Mallards thought the water lilies are taking up far too much space:



And back to Watery Wednesdays, hosted by 2SweetnSaxy, for exciting water photos from all parts of the world.

Great shots. The pond lilies are beautiful! It makes me laugh when I see ducks sitting in any old kind of water like that. I wonder why.

Those Mallards look a little snobby to me...

The mallard photo is adorable and unique!

Kitty said...

More like personal foot-baths! Maybe they didn't notice the pond?

Awesome shots! Adore the crisp detail of the flowers, but the first one of the mallards in their own little muddy pool is so cute!

The first one is a fun photo.

Have a great week.

Hehe! They don't share a bedroom those two! Made me smile, that photo!
And the waterlily is gorgeous! Love how that one leaf is standing out of the water.

The ducks are adorable!

Tricia said...

Awww - Surely they moved to the pond sooner or later. I wonder why they did that!
Anyway, beautiful photos - I love the waterlily!

Ebie said...

Wow, the first photo is very cute. Were you at the right place but at the wrong time? Giggles! And those lilies are so lovely, and you captured them right on the spot!

Arija said...

Such superb waterlilies!!! Love your 'any puddle in a storm, but you can't have min' shot.

Cute capture of the Mallard, but those water lilies are truly beautiful.

Aileni said...

That has cheered me somewhat... our water was cut off at breakfast. What fun - the kind of unWatery Wednesday we could do without.

Maggie May said...
