Thursday’s Special: All the ducks have left

Just a few weeks ago ducks could be spotted by a local lake. Now that they have all moved south, I wish I could follow them.


**About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘non-challenge’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. I invite everybody interested to join in. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions (no red tape whatsoever). The only thing required is to post a photo post on Thursdays entitled “Thursday’s Special: (your theme/title)” (as explained in my Thursday’s Special introductory post), to provide a link to my Thursday’s Special post, and to leave a link to your post in the comments section of my post. If you like Thursday’s Special widget, feel free to grab it and post it on your blog.

    • Ils sont partis parce qu’il commence à faire “un froid de canard” ! 😀 (expression française pour dire qu’il fait très froid 🙂 ).


    • Ah, je ne le savais pas :D. Je vais prendre encore des photos des canard pour toi quand ils seraient revenus :). Tu peux me dire si la grammaire dans ma phrase precedente est correctte?


      • “Je vais encore prendre des photos de canards pour toi quand ils seront revenus”
        Parce que c’est du futur. 🙂

        Youpiiiie ! 😆

  3. Wildlife photographer too? Excellent! 😀

    Love the new look too. I recently changed themes as well, though not a noticeable as yours 😉 Now I’d like to make a request, stop being so darned prolific! You’re posting faster than I can keep up 😛 Love all the new photos I see in the notification emails, now I just have to go visit them!


    • Please don’t stress out over this. I have a great urge to be more active these days – it is a kind of therapy for me. xo

  6. A new look! You put your week of ill health to good use, Paula. Hope you’re fully recovered now. 🙂
    Perfect duck paddling music, too.


    • Thank you so much, Jo. The problem with my bugs is that they almost always turn into long-lasting sinus infections that take weeks to cure, fever and all -not at all easy to be in the office,but I am more upbeat now that November is almost over 🙂


    • You are right, the processing brought out the colours nicely. I love your gorgeous contribution, Madhu. Meeting those bucks would make me happy for days.

  10. Oh that’s my cousin Zlatan, he dreams of finding a rich widow. He knows that clothes make the man, so his tailor has a really good business, while his bank manager is on the verge of nervous breakdown. Zlatan is secretly in love with Mrs. Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced “Bouquet”) – but lack of cash for travel to England – Zlatan think she lives in Liverpool (because her sister is Liverpool FC supporter and her brother in law (Onslow) is Everton FC supporter) so Zlatan troubling much for me to invite and pay a trip to Liverpool… 🙂 🙂

    Paula have I ever told you that you are a really sweet girl… 🙂 🙂


    • 😆 as I said – tons of laughs guaranteed. That was (is) my favourite British comedy ever 🙂
      P.S. No, you haven’t. At least not until now 😉 xx


            • Ah, you meant he should tell us the same story again next Thursday? 😀 I am glad you liked the other contributions, Amy 🙂 I hope you have time to see the other 8


                • The main reason why I invested into a new theme was to make everything more visible and accessible. I think the menu bar is very clear and nobody should have trouble finding links to all Thursday’s Special posts. I think it does not require a separate page, at least not for now. I preferred to have the discussion about TS here in case somebody would like to jump in with their suggestions 🙂


  11. What a duck! I hope she’s a she…is beautiful. Thursday Special. H’m, I’m giving it a thought for now…

    Who’s the she singer, Paula? I believe I liked the song added to my playlist titled “Feel Good Time”.

    Thanks in advance.

    • You’ve outdone yourself 🙂 Trying to climb a scaffolding to get in? 😉 Your curiosity paid off. I am impressed and so happy with your generous offering. Keep well, dear Jo.


  13. The colours on this duck is just so beautiful. God blessedly beautiful! Great photo.

    And enjoyed the music again! 🙂
