From the same pond as the Ring-Necked Duck is this Mallard. I know Mallards are an extremely common bird. And fairly easy to photograph, but I still enjoy shooting them because, like Gulls, they always seem to be doing something. This particular gent was curious about what I was doing and came over to take a look. I love the quizzical look he gave me, plus the texture on the water and the way it blends with the bokeh.
