All My Ducks in a Row

Ducks in a row.jpeg

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!

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!


Bigfoot

An American Coot ( Fulica americana) scratching around in the undergrowth at the edge of Mill Lake. The size of the Coots feet always amazes me!

A Trio

A trio of drake Buffleheads (Bucephala albeola) hanging out with a group of mixed ducks at Mill Lake in Abbotsford. I really like the action and different colours of the water in this shot!

A Cautious Eye

Here's that Coot again.  It has it's eye on a Bald Eagle in a near by tree!  I would too, if I were prey!
