Evening Mallard

Just a bunch of Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) photos from yesterday at Rokushou-en and a bit more photos of the Red-breasted Mergansers (Mergus serrator). These 5 Mallards were resting at the rocky shore just in front of the sand spa. The drake seemed to be in such a perfect plumage and its glossy green head was just awesome in evening light, so I couldn't help but taking photos of it while waiting for the mergansers to come. There were 4 more females resting beside this drake, what a lucky guy it is.
Shame about its's a beautiful duck!

And the females

And the eclipse male; What a cool hair style.

A nice pair of Mallard to finish this blog.
