I like the detail in the photo. I notice a curl in the tail. I've never seen that on mallards before. I don't know if it's just this bird or that you showed enough detail so I could see it.
Mallards are such pretty birds! He does look like he's paddling hard.
Yes! So cute. Wonderful picture and a huge smile in a few words!
What a wonderful picture.
Great caption! Love the picture!
He's paddling like quackers.
A beautiful capture of the duck's colors. It looks so natural in this show too. Well done.
I have always thought they were beautiful. Nice capture.

This guy is bookin' it through that cold water! Mallards so showy.
A bright and colourful character on a mission! He looks great in his water world!
Adorable - I love the peek at his paddling feet!
swimming against the tide must be hard work.
Poor fella- he's swimming against the tide! Cool shot Carletta!
Mallards are always one of my favorite duck. Easy to locate, and who can resist such beautiful colors.Have a great rest of the week.

Meant to tell you, there is a review of Homer Hickam's book on my sidebar not just the picture, and it tells about how my sis-in-laws friend went to school with Sonny in W Va. I knew you must not of seen that because of your comment. Hope all is going well for you!
