For some time now, I’ve only been seeing the male mallards swimming about in the river playing grass widowers. (Just for once, I wish I was writing this in Swedish, because the Swedish name for mallard translates “grass duck”.)
Not easy to catch with camera, though! There were so many reflections in the water that they made themselves almost invisible. How many ducklings can you see in picture below?
There are five little ones + mummy
Photography lesson learned: Even though I now have a camera with more zoom capacity, before I have zoomed in, the birds have disappeared way out of my focus!
