Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Friends, these ring -necked ducks are motoring thru a field of blue.  I haven’t figured out why they are called ring-necked ducks when the ring around the bill is by far more prominent than the very slight ring around the neck.  But this image was inspired by Arthur Morris’s images of Pied-billed grebes with what he calls a “wake shot”.  This is my  “wake shot”.  til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Nice one, MJ, they look so content motoring away across the water 🙂

  2. beautiful mj, ‘motoring’! inspiring me to get out there today too 🙂

  3. The horses are really nice. I suspect they are head to head for protection. Not just flies, which they do switch ends to fight, but any danger they may face. Being in the wild they never take chances. Jack and I have seen the horses in the Teddy Roosevelt Park. mikki
