[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, the Beautiful Lady Mallard.

1/1600s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

From New Hampshire Public Television website :

« Most of the mallard's diet is made up of plants.
It eats the seeds of grasses and sedges and the leaves,
stems, and seeds of aquatic plants. It occasionally eats
insects and crustaceans and mollusks, especially when
it is young. It prefers to forage in water that is less than
16 inches deep so it can duck its head down and reach
plants at the bottom. The mallard sometimes forages on
farmland for grains like rice, corn, oats, wheat, and barley. »
