  19. Hello Bob,
    The male Mallard is a duck we tend to dismiss, but they are really a very colorful bird greatly underrated, super series of images.
    Best wishes,

  24. Beautiful images, fully showing the handsome features and fabulous colour of the head of this duck, Bob.

    Sorry for the late visit - been away on the Isles of Scilly where we had a few problems, including failure of the internet on the islands and then came home to find a disaster that's taking time to sort out.

    Stay safe - best wishes - - - Richard
