Not Just Any Duck

Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) are often taken for granted, but I hadn’t seen one for quite sometime. So when I came across several males and females on the local canal they were a pure delight to see as they paddled across the still waters with autumn reflections.

  1. I love mallards! They’re such social birds, and so willing to make friends with us — sometimes even if we don’t have a handful of bread!

  2. Can’t go wrong with Mallards, Peter. Or reflections! The male’s head is so fascinating to watch as they turn into and out of the light as they go about their business.

    1. Hi Ark,
      Thanks for asking. All okay. Just having a break from things and doing other stuff until spring kicks in.

      Hope all is good with you there, friend?
