Here; the female Mallard duck cruises the shoreline. She was with one other female. Our most common duck that gets overlooked often for pictures because of it.

Foraging and Feeding:
Mallard: Dabbles in shallow freshwater for vegetation, insects, mollusks, and crustaceans. Often forages for food in fields and woodlots.

Hello Trevor

The reflection of the vegetation on the water

Hello Trevor,
You are correct, the female mallard seems to get the short end of the stick when it comes to recognition. You have done a fine job of showing this little lady off in her natural habitat. Well done!!
