Puddle Reflections

 Killdeer standing in puddle #1 

This is Mama Killdeer also seen  here .  She was, I believe, on the opposite side of the puddle from  her baby. Doesn't she look calm? She's a very good actress.

 Killdeer standing in puddle #2

Still looking very calm.  Well, I hadn't gotten too close to her baby and she was fine with that. You can't see Dad, but he is putting on an even more convincing act, playing the "broken wing" trick. How interesting that he seemed more alarmed than Mama!

I laughed so hard at Gill's comment I had to clean my monitor!

Killdeer... they amuse and perplex me, especially their penchant for laying their eggs on gravel roads and drives.

Good and caring parents!

Margaret Adamson said...

Now Dad is the defence/action man while Mum keeps her cool. Both tactics are grat in protecting their young ones. Greaat shots.

Mary Hone said...

I love those. Watching the killdear is always so fun.

Lowell said...

She's quite attractive as well as being a good actress. Maybe she's got a chance at the movies?

Such beautiful photos of a beautiful bird! xx

Susan said...

Beautiful bird, wonderful photos. Isn't that how is works even with humans, Mom's don't react as much as Dad's. She sensed that you weren't going to hurt her baby, you were showing the respect that made her watch you with real intent instead of panicking. Oh heck, what do I know?

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Pretty neat reflection- I had to laugh at Gill's comment, because it is so true. LOL!

Have a great weekend!

cieldequimper said...

They are pretty birds. Father's instincts must be underrated!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Pretty portraits. I always want to tell them that I wouldn't hurt their babies for anything. They go to so much unnecessary work (we see them here in Oregon quite often).

She was alert, though.

The world needs more lerts!
