The mallard is one of the most globally recognised and successful species of waterfowl. Commonly found across Europe, Asia, North America, Africa and parts of Australia, this ducks success has been attributed to its ability to adapt to any environment. ⠀
Mallards are omnivorous and therefore will eat any type of aquatic food source available, from vegetation to small invertebrates such as insects, worms and snails. They are also happy eating food provided by humans and therefore are a regular site within urban parks and green spaces. In the UK they very rarely migrate, since they are easily able to cope in the colder winter months, and therefore are a species that can easily be viewers year round. ⠀
This female mallard was spotted in my looking park, having an early morning rest in some bright sunshine. Although this is a fairly simple image, of a bird stood at the edge of a lake, the bright lighting helps to turn this simplicity into something more interesting.
I think this might be my favorite wing position and angle of an in flight Mallard. I love that you can see his curly Q’s, all of the color in his wings and his head. If you look close you can even see his rudder in action, haha. Have an amazing day and choose to be happy!
PS - I owe a good friend of mine @harlanb.cooper a huge thank you for showing me some tricks to help me be more successful in my Waterfowl endeavors. Thanks brother!
