? : (This is my shortest title.)
Mallard Duck (female)
Anas platyrhynchos

During the summer, mallards spend much time asleep on water banks.
The mallard has only three defenses- swimming, flying, and camouflage, and it is prey to large mammals.
Mallards have no defense against humans who are their biggest enemy.
Many are killed by oil spills and pesticides.

I think it is the good time to post some mallards while some of you send magnificent photos of insects. I envy you.

Thank you for looking.

Excellent mallard portrait with a lot of details and great colours.

Hi Luc!
Very funny portrait.Like a Walt Disney's character.Details,BG,sharpness and composition are excellent.
Thanks for sharing.

A fine detailed portrait of the humble Mallard Luc.
Their camouflage works rather well when they get in amongst the reeds.
Very nice work.
