Martha seems a bit camera-shy. Your good shows the detail on the feathers quite nicely!

These ducks are so cute.
You can see they each have their own unique personalities.

How cute! One tends to look past the less colorful females and concentrate on the more elaborately feathered males. Your photo shows that the female markings are pretty too...

I love the mallards and probably spend way too much time watching them on the pond, but I find them so interesting...

Martha is an interesting name for a young drake. I predict he will get in many squabbles on the pond before he fully matures.

The hens are a much more solid brown, and the young drakes have the "shadow" on the top of their head where the darker "skull cap" will be.

Don't they have the prettiest coloring and design in their feathers? Super photo Carletta. Funny enough I have done a series of duck photos from my critter entry this week.
