Mallard Duck [Anas platyrhynchos]

Everyone has got a picture of them, the Mallard Duck. And I know how they breed!

  8. Grand shots. There was a Mallard with eight ducklings but she has lost them all to the Otter, Pike and possibly the Heron. Very careless.

  29. Parece que hay un fallo y no se si se publicara mi comentario, Pues decía muy buena entrada entrada Bob al igual que las demás con una gran calidad de imagen, estos días por aquí en dos fuentes de mi ciudad se deja ver un Ánade real que hace las delicias y la extrañeza de que se acerque tanto a los humanos, un abrazo.
