The Friendly Duck

Its always nice to receive a friendly visit from a Mallard Duck, especially when you have food to share!

The Mallard

I captured a very friendly female Mallard Duck. Based on the environment in which we met, a lake in a nearby community, she was very friendly and openly accepted a few pieces of left over worms after our fishing adventures. She did err on the side of caution as she wasn’t comfortable enough to get to close to us. I really love the contrast of the brown and blue feathers.
