While photographing herons one day, I noticed some commotion on the bank and saw these fellas huddled up. It turned out they weren't talking sports or downing some cold ones. They were engaged in a bit of a duck scuffle. A little squabbling amongst the males of the species.
And what, you may ask, was the source of the tension? Why, the female of the species. Miss Thing. She was just sitting there acting innocent as if nothing was going on. The boys later continued their squabble out on the lake with Miss Thing swimming behind them apparently waiting for one of them to be declared the victor.
