You have once again posted a great series. I especially like the last shot with the water dropping from it's bill.

BTW Mr. Brian, thanks for notifying my squirrels that I serve great food at the bird tower! ;D

Brilliant captures as always, Brian!
So clear and such beautiful reflections. I love the bright colours in the first and last shots and the water dripping off its bill

Rebecca said...

I like how you can see the two with their heads tucked in are still keeping one watchful eye open.

As always, simply gorgeous photos! The one with the water dripping from the bill is my favorite - just because it takes patience and fast shutters to get that! Great shots.

Good series Brian! These mallards must be quite comfortable with your presence. I have found the male's iridescent head very difficult to expose properly but you did a great job here.

Tammy said...

That does look like a cold drink! Stunning colors on that male! Well done!
