Weekly Top Shot

There is a magical light near the slough in Birch Bay State Park - I always get the best shots there - and fabulous color - it seems enchanted.  Yesterday we saw Mallard Ducks there - as we often do - but on the way out of the park we saw some dozing on the bank - great photo opportunity.




Mama duck sleeping - or is she?  Look at that eye, keeping on guard.


Everyone eating .  .  .  gives new meaning to the phrase "bottoms up"



 The duck in back is shaking his head after eating - I love how the water droplets are spraying off  his head.

I've always thought up ended ducks were a bit funny too... that hen is keeping her eye on you! I 'fixed' your meme link... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #69!

Love the cobalt blue in that first shot and of course the duck butts were fun to see too.
