The Lone Duck

Using the phrase “sitting ducks” in a post a couple of days ago reminded me of some pictures I took during the summer. A lone female mallard was hanging out near the spillway. When I drove up, she was wading near the swing. It didn’t seem to ruffle her feathers one bit when I walked over and sat in the swing. I sat there taking pictures for quite a while.
