Female Mallard

Female Mallard
Mallards are “dabbling ducks”—they feed in the water by tipping forward and grazing on underwater plants. They almost never dive. They can be very tame ducks especially in city ponds, and often group together with other Mallards and other species of dabbling ducks.

Wonderful capture and water color. The water reminds me of the lakes at Grand Teton National Park.

o0o the water is a beautiful colour ... and yes they can be
friendly ... they eat out of our hands ;-) but we have special
food for them ... its Swan and Duck food ;-) and so they
get used to being fed, somehow they seem to recognise
when they are called ;-) is it because they are called
"Daffy" ;-)))) oOo
