Among the Lily Pads

Friends, this baby mallard is hiding among the lily pads, when i first approached he was sitting in the middle of the lily patch, but when he saw me he headed for water.  The bottom image shows his struggle as he fought his way through the pads to reach the water.  Safe on the water, til Tomorrow MJ

  1. nice sequence … the moorhens just run over the lily pads, but ducks are not as mobile above the water … i can just see this little mallard struggling out in to the clear 🙂

  2. Great photograph and story.
