Here’s Eight Mallards (Anas platyrhychos), four pair, four male, four females. All were asleep with their heads down. Something made a noise and all the males popped up. Females weren’t bothered and kept sleeping! Who has their priorities right!
Here’s an archive shot from a couple of years back that I’ve always liked! A pair of Mallard drakes, Anas platyrhychos.

I love all the different colours in the water!
