Male Mallard amongst Pond Vegetation
Upon reflection, this mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) looks like it is having second thoughts about approaching the camera, and instead sets about finding a way out of the curtain of branches and leaves. It's not awfully becoming of us that the ducks we encounter want to run away, we admit, but fortunately, the future videos of this set will feature less of that.
