Debbie, this Wood Duck display of affection was a most special, intimate moment we were fortunate to see. Very touching, indeed! Makes me smile. Lovely images.
Awww...such sweet, tender moments. Love it!
How flipping adorable!!! How very anthropomorphic :) He nuzzles three times, and she comes back with six affectionate pokes before the smooch on the cheek - Made me smile.
Debbie, a very touching interaction between the Wood Ducks. You did a masterful job capturing this heartwarming moment.
Isn't it romantic? Lovely series!
Thank you kindly for the views and comments on this sweet interaction. The ducks were so incredibly adorable that they took my attention away from a Black-crowned Night Heron I was watching. The heron sat just a few feet away from the ducks on a broken branch while patiently perching and searching for it's next meal. North Pond is amazing ... so many Nature-ally Beautiful moments to take in and enjoy!
Super Super Series! Makes my heart sing :)
Thank Kerri ... that is exactly how it felt watching them!
