Mallard Duck: York County, Maine, USA, November 2023 — Far up one of our tidal rivers in a quiet backwater there lives a small flock of Mallards. Mallards are so common that we hardly look at them anymore, but they are worth looking at. Take this pair on the mossy log. Dig those orange feet and the iridescent kelley green. They were attractive enough, and then the male decided to really show off. He was not taking flight. Just stretching his wings. She did not seem to be impressed. 🙂 OM Systems OM-1 with ED 100-400mm zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Photomator.
