Mallards and Woods

Ducks that is  🙂

It was a beautiful bright sunny day when Chester and I had our walk yesterday.  I had an earlier shift so we had an earlier walk.  The sun was just at a nice level to make everything look wonderful.

I saw one pair of Mallard Ducks, but the female was in the long grasses so I couldn’t get a picture of her, but managed a couple of nice ones of him.  Then I saw something on the grass quite a bit in front of me and just wasn’t sure what it was – so I zoomed in to take a picture.  I knew when I snapped the pic that it was ducks, but without my glasses didn’t know how many or what kind.  Once I got home and looked at the pictures, it was a male Mallard and 2 pairs of Wood Ducks.  You have to look closely at the picture to see the 2nd pair.  I’ve enlarged the hidden pair in one picture to make it a bit easier to see them.  The male is the hardest one to see.

Just in front of the female Wood Duck, you can see the other female and in front of her is the other male.  Here is the enlargement of those 2.
