Mallard Ducks

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Being such a common year-round duck, we all probably see more Mallards than we think we need to, and so most times we ignore photographing them.  I’m guilty!  But on occasion especially in the early morning or late evening, you can’t ignore the male Mallard’s iridescent beauty.  An evening a few weeks ago, one was resting along our riprap.  The evening sun intensified his colors.  So, okay…..I had to take a photograph.  And I liked it!

The Mallard Duck is my 4 1/2 year old grandson’s favorite bird, most likely because every time he visits us, he and I must go to see and feed the ducks at the duck pond at a local restaurant, Fisherman’s Inn and Crab Deck.  We have been doing this together since he was two.  Here’s a few photos from one of our recent visits.  🙂

Benjamin and I think the Mallard Duck is always smiling.  Seems so!

Benjamin and I always have a fun time with the ducks.  The Mallard Duck is more important to me than I had originally thought.   🙂
