We've had a motley crew of Mallards hanging around the Hollow for the past few weeks.
There's a definite couple
- Mr. and Mrs. Mallard, we'll call them -
and then a large group that's sometimes with the couple and sometimes off on a separate pond.
Could it be a family reunion?
These are the Mallards who attracted Mr. Coyote earlier this week. That day (when they were almost eaten) they just put up a little fuss.
But the instant I lift my lens in their direction for a photo, off they go.
I've managed to sneak a few shots before they fly, though, and here they are...
They spotted me!
