They were swimming out towards the middle of our lake and when they saw me on the dock, they came swimming up to me, blessing me with some really nice closeups of them.
I worry about that.
Because here, it is duck season!!!
I fear these were so tamed during the summer that they were not afraid of people.
Luckily, most of our lake is inhabited by cabins or homes so there are not many areas of the lake where hunters can come duck hunting for them.
If they stay in our bay, we are right on Main Street of town, so they are super safe there.
Just look how pretty this female mallard's "backside" is!!
And her bright yellow bill! (Along with a drop of slobber!):
The one on the right is shaking the water off of her head.
It made me laugh:
And besides all that drinking, slobbering, and shaking their heads, they also scratch themselves a lot.
I wonder if they are JOCKS???
