Mallards at sunset

(forgot to hit the POST button -- three days ago}


I visited The Park for the first time in about 10 days...
and found not much that I wanted to photograph.
But I did photograph and discovered something about Mallards at sunset.

Water will run off a ducks back... and beak and tail...
and if you are lucky you can see it happen all at once.

A duck's foot is most orange at sunset... and if you ask
politely they may show it to you.

Mallards can be quite serene at sunset.
They will smile if you say something funny.

Many are followers... a few are leaders.
