  13. What great shots. I don't think I've ever seen any of these. But our ducks and geese do the same thing this time of year. I guess Spring brings on the yound man's fancy in all critters large and small.

    And yes, he'll get his girl. lol. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

  16. Great set of pictures - courtship in bird often looks rather brutal!

    My wrens do not have loud voices - they just make do with loud plumage!

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
