Stadig mindre is og stadig mer fugl å se om dagen nå. Godt er det :o) Flott det siste bildet, det så i grunn kaldt ut... men det var pent med dråpene som ligger på fjæra.

Mojo sa...

Staggering that they can withstand water that cold isn't it? That pond can't be but a couple of degrees above freezing, but it doesn't seem to bother them a bit.

Great photos as always. I'd love to know how you got close enough to get that last one! Did you bribe them with food?

They are all lovely, but the last one is so different, I just love it.

Rune; Ja det er deilig at det minker på snøen nå! Går litt tregt synes jeg - men det lysner!

Mojo; (laughing..) Of course I bribed them with food! Everyone does, visiting that lake! have to say, the birds are very familiar with people there, it is a very popular place to watch birds - ore simply go for a walk.

But to be honest - I cropped the photo! :)

Oh my hat's off to them for being able to withstand the cold waters. Great capture.

Va tusan. Sjön är ju helt isfri. Det var ju ganska fräckt. Våra börjar just nu att smälta men än så länge ligger sörjan kvar mestadels.
Nä alvarsamt talat så är det här ju väldigt trevliga bilder och den sista tog mej med häpnad. Måste rikstigt titta några gånger på den förrän jag fattade vad det var.

I'll bet the ducks and geese are some happy to finally see open water on a regular basis! I know I am ; )

Nice feet!

Great photos! I love the Mallard foot shot!

These were great. My favorite kind of shots - water. :-D I lie the detail in that last shot. You can see the drops of water on its feathers.

Bryan sa...

Great leg shot. I often forget just how colorful duck legs can be.

Bim sa...

So it's still cold in Norway. I, too, think the wet duck belly is fabulous.

Beautiful mallards! We have them also! I once tried to lure them into my house, but they didn't dare! Ha det bra!

George sa...

It's good to see that some of the ice has melted. You got great pictures for Watery Wednesday.

Judy sa...

What great shots! I love the way you have gotten closer with each photo! I was so impressed with the second shot, the reflection of that patch of blue sky, but then I scrolled down to the third shot, and just gasped! The detail is astounding!! The water droplets, especially!

TorAa sa...

No doubt that Østensjøvannet is something special regarding wild birds.
The last photo is nothing but excellent
