Spring: season of Romance! II
Mallard Ducks
Anas Platyrhynchos

I photographed this couple of Mallards in a park at 10 minutes from my home. It is the first Mallards whom I see in this park this spring. There are two ponds in this park. One served as ice rink this winter (see the WS). These ponds are emptied in autumn and will soon be performed. Stones which you see around ducks are in the bottom of the future pond. By waiting for this, the couple sunbathe under the morning sun.
It is not the information which miss on TN about Mallards, but if by 'happiness' it is the first time which you see them, you will find some information here.

I shall be absent on TN for some days for personal cases but I will try to write some comments and critiques. I hope to return towards my mistress (the Nature's photography) soon.

I hope that you like these future mom and dad.

Luc, what a gentleman duck you have here, protecting his lady sitting on the hard rocks. Very nicely caught.
And you will be missed, but we look forward to seeing your new photos when you come back.
I like what you wrote very much. A bit of personality in it.

Hi, my friend. Very nice picture.
Good colours, details and composition.
Very well done.

I hope we will see you soon.

A lovely capture. All of the ducks at my local ponds have been paired up for ages, no young one's yet though.
A great pose, thanks for sharing.

Very nice capture here, I love the colours. I find animals are difficult to photograph but you are clearly an expert in this field. I enjoy all of your photos. Thank you!
