Lucky Duck (OWPC)

Female Mallard Duck

Female Mallard Duck

This lucky duck was having a peaceful float down the creek. She wasn’t alone! There were two female and two male mallard ducks hanging out on Sunday when I went to the park! Their iridescent colors are fantastic! Look for the vivid blue speculum feathers that you might not see at first glance. I think I was a lucky duck to see these water birds!

The timing was perfect to share these pictures for JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge: Duck

  1. The colours are wonderful aren’t they. The ducks are returning to the marina now and pairing up teady for the mating season. They are extremely joyous in the other basin as they have the entire area to themselves, and we heard them practicing their ‘swan dives’ off the dismantled pontoon fingers last night. Couldn’t see a thing, but they sure sounded as if they were having fun!
