Camera Critters - ducks and drakes

Our dogs disturbed this pair of Mallards. Often there are two drakes courting one duck. Duck leads off with drake following closely.
No peace for Duck . . . Duck touches down followed as ever by her faithful swain.Though we see Mallards every year we have never yet seen any ducklings . . . strange . . .


Thank you to Misty Dawn for this meme.

  10. That's a very cool series of shots...

    I noticed that this year there has not been a lot of ducklings or goslings, down at our local lake ... even though I've seen plents of mating behaviour.

  11. Nice series - and a lovely background to have photograhed them against. I always feel sorry for female mallards - they get so harrassed!
