Lake of the Lilies

I saw a lot of Mallard Ducks during my recent visit to Lake of the Lilies.
I don't always pay attention to the Mallards because they are so common around here.
But on Saturday they looked particularly beautiful...
and if I am to be honest, there were not many other ducks to be seen or photographed.
The ducks that migrate to this lake and spend the winter here, have not arrived yet.


Male Mallards



Female Mallards



A Lesser Scalp


I am pretty sure these are Hybrid Ducks


Lots of Ducks and Swans, it was a beautiful day at the lake!

  16. Mallards are seriously underrated. If they weren't so common people would be oohing and aahing until their tongues got sore.
