Just a couple of the friends I made while here at the beach. These actually frequent a freshwater pond just behind the beach.


  1. Glad you mentioned the fresh water pond, as I was curious about ducks at the beach.

  2. Lovely. I like ducks, they seem so friendly.

    1. Not really. I think that's just the effect of shooting in the shadows, Iris. They're mallards. So the male has a green cap as well as bright blue chevrons on his upper wing feathers (not shown). The female, of course, has only the blue chevrons sans green cap.


Thanks for your comment! All comments are read and I will try to respond to all blog-related queries.
