Outdoor Wednesday

While taking a walk yesterday we saw these beautiful red trees, good for taking a picture for Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan from A Southern Daydreamer.Good I had my camera with me. In a little nearby pool these ducks were fighting and doing what they had to do, watched by these beautiful swans.





For more beautiful outdoor photo's go to Susans blog where you can find a list of all the other participants of this weekly event.
Have a wonderful day.

Hello Riet
It's been awhile. Our fall is now over. We are awaiting the snow, but the last few days have been warm and sunny, so unusual for Nov.
Happy OW
Just think it will be a year since our Xmas card exchange. Oh my.
Love Claudie

Good morning Riet. I have been visiting my daughter for 10 days so visiting my blog friends has suffered. I am happy to visit you today.

Your photos are gorgeous as always. You sure do know your camera. Your header is very beautiful and the ducks and swans just make me smile. Swans are so elegant aren't they?

Happy Outdoors Wednesday.

Hugs, Jeanne

PS when you come over scroll down to see our new puppy. A little poodle.

Mallard ducks are so much prettier than the Muscovy ducks we have around here. And those swans are so graceful. Thanks for sharing, Riet.

Riet, I adore swans. There's a lake I used to live near years ago that had a pair of swans given to them by the Queen of England. From that pair, they had babies, and they also bought and bred more swans. Now it is a symbol of the city, and they are the city's prize. I love to go there and see them swimming when I go back there to visit. Thanks for sharing these. They always make me smile.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

Hi Riet,

Wat een prachtige boom is dit, is het een Lariks, die kunnen ook zo fraai verkleuren. De foto's van de zwanen zijn ook bijzonder mooi. Sinds kort zie ik ze niet meer, maar wij hadden hier op de buurt twee zwanen met vijf jongen. Zo mooi om die ontwikkelingen te zien naar groot worden. Eerst heel donker en steeds [heel langzaam] zie je ze een stukje lichter worden tot ze uiteindelijk helemaal wit zijn. Daar gaat best een lange tijd overheen voordat het zover is. Had er ook foto's van gemaakt maar mijn toestel is gewoon veel te slecht om er iets fraais uit te krijgen. Weet jij trouwens dat zwanen stelletjes een heel leven bij elkaar blijven, heb ik pas gelezen. Grappig hé.

Lieve groet Josephine
