Yesterday I chanced upon a female Mallard and her young brood of nine and captured their images through my camera lens, my window on nature.

Your nature images are always super. This poem that captures that instant of darkness when the shutter clicks is absolutely perfect. Thanks.

What a perfect poem and photo for that idea! I love how you did that! It is so fitting for all of us who use our cameras as our window on nature. Super! And the ducks are really cute!

Ann, how very inventive! Lovely photo and poem! :)

Wonderful... I tried to convey the same idea only not nearly as well. I love the photo of your camera with the picture in it. Very cleverly done.

Very beautiful. And look at the other shot! Nine? I haven't seen that big a brood in a long time.

Wow..multi-talented...not fair! I love the mallards..those little guys look to be about a month old. Nice habitat for them too. Better than our pond. I guess I will have to learn how to use some of the editing software I have purchased, but don't use...

That is an absolutely wonderful unique picture ! Also I'm wondering if all nine ducklings belong to that Mom.
What a cool post!

Michelle said...

Becky and Gary...mallards have up to 12 and aren't good about taking in orphans. They will peck a duckling that isn't theirs...

Yours is my FAVORITE of all the One Single Impression offerings this week. Now THAT'S a very creative picture. :)

Shutters within my camera close nature's window reads to me like the opening line (or opening couplet) of a longer poem. Really lovely turn of phrase.
