Wild Bird Wednesday.

Jeg har noen flere bilder fra søndagens sykkeltur til Stordammen, som jeg tenkte å poste til Wild Bird Wednesday.
Det holdt naturligvis til noen ender i dammen. De var så fine, og selvfølgelig tok jeg mange bilder av dem :) 

I have a few more photos from our Sunday outing to the Great Pond, which I thought I would post for Wild Bird Wednesday.
Of course we saw some ducks by the pond. They were so sweet, and I took  several photos of them :)

Stokkand er Norges vanligste andefugl, men selv om de er vanlige er de alltid koselige å se.

The mallard is the most common duck in Norway, and though they are common they are always nice to see.

De svømte helt inntil knausen ved vannkanten der vi satt. Kanskje de håpet på en matbit?

They swam close to the cliffwhere we were sitting. Maybe they were hoping we had some food for them?

I tillegg til stokkendene kom en enslig kvinand svømmende.
Den kan sees midt på vannet på bildet over.
Jeg måtte smile av den, for den kom seilende avgårde i rasende fart.

In addition to the Mallards a single Common Goldeneye came swimming by.
It can be seen in the middle of the water in the photo above.
Seing it made me smile, because it was swimming at really high speed.

Den kom dessverre ikke så nært at det gikk å få et bra bilde av den, dette var det beste bildet jeg fikk.
Som det kan sees på det brune hodet er dette en kvinand-hunn, og man kan tydelig se at den har gule øyne.

Unfortunately it didn't come as close for me to get a good photo of it, this one was the best I managed.
As seen by the brown head this is a female, and the golden eye is clearly visible.

Vi så inger han-ender.

Female Mallards.
We did not see any males.

Beautiful pictures!! Mallards are also the most common ducks in Germany. Seems as if they are very flexible :-)

Lovely series of shots.

Your photographs are incredibly sharp – you can almost count the feathers on the Mallards, thank you for sharing them.
