Mallards are pretty plentiful anywhere you go. Their beauty can be taken for granted. I don’t normally go out of my way to photograph them. But this day the light was so good!
Look at how the sunlight reflects the iridescence of this male’s head feathers!
And look at this exquisite lady! Every feather is perfect. Mallards pair up in fall and winter, which explains why so many mallard couples are swimming around our local lakes this time of year.
Do you remember Daffy Duck? The mallard quack reminds me of Daffy duck’s quack… or maybe a raspy old man’s laugh. Mallards are omnivorous, eating mostly vegetation but also insects.
I can’t believe how this duck’s head feathers reflect the sunlight. Can you imagine a world where everyone reflects God’s light outward to those around them? During this season of giving, consider giving more of yourself to others.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
