  1. Quite distinguished looking creatures!

  2. Lovely looking ducks. The first one looks nice and plump.

  3. What beautiful and shiny specimens of our fine feathered friends. Their white looks pristine it is sososo white. My, that water looks cold, but it certainly ins’t bothering them the least little bit. Pretty captures. Happy Season.

  4. We don't have Eider ducks here. I understand they produce the very best down.

  5. It is a good thing they produce lots of down being how chilly you can get there on the water. I remember one summer we were all bundled up and children were out playing in the water. I could not believe my eyes. One was the cutest little red headed girl. The temp of the water did not phase her. Love the ducks.
