Here’s something not seen just every day in a housing area.  I glanced out my front window and right across the street was a drake Mallard.  In the midst of taking his picture, his mate waddled up from a small pool in the drainage ditch and joined him.  Apparently, he was acting as guard duck while she bathed.  No ducklings in attendance though – darn it.  Beautiful plumage on both of them.

  1. Great shots Bill! I love ducks! I was out hanging my washing on the line on Saturday morning and the noise above was deafening. It was a rather large V of ducks flying over. I suppose they were off to the wildfowl park near me… nesting. Fancy those birds taking up residence wher they have!
