It was a beautiful day yesterday and I decided it would be a great opportunity to take my youngest to our local ponds and feed the ducks. There have been lots of babies born this spring and they are growing very fast. So fast, most of them look like adults now. Well, expect for this juvenile wood duck, who displays plenty of down feathers still.

Here’s another wood duck, this one a little older but still not displaying all the bright colors the wood duck is famous for.

Of course, the most common duck there is the mallard. The female mallard duck features mostly plain brown feathers but I love how the early morning light reflects the bright blue sky into the dark water to give it a beautiful blue hue. A nice contrast with the bland feathers of the female mallard duck.

There were tons of mallard ducks at the pond, and of course many duck couples. If you let them, they’d overtake the place. Oh wait, they already do!
