A rather obliging Mallard at the London Wetland Centre.
No interactions present.
I don't think we appreciate just how beautiful the Mallard is. I certainly don't usually reach for my camera - perhaps I should more often!
Thanks for you comment Jeff. I've done observations of Mallards before, but when you see one posed as this one did, I'm afraid I can't resist. As you say the colours are amazing. Nice to get a positive comment by the way!
