A drake Mallard (Anas platyrhychos) looks out across the water of Mill Lake. I’m always amazed how that Green head can change colour in the light!
A Northern Pintail (Acer acuta) looking very handsome as he swims through some greenery on the water.
A most handsome duck is the Mallard (Anas platyrhychos). He also is one of my favourite ducks! Wherever one goes there seems to be Mallards. Three Cheers or Quacks for Mallards!
A beautiful drake Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) standing on a big log in the water at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Ladner, B.C. The sun was lighting this guy up quite nicely!
Here is yesterdays mate. A male Hooded Merganser. He has such a wonderful hood. Here he is an a golden hour pond. The movement of water and light and reflection interests me a great deal. This is a great example.
