[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), probably the best-known and most recognizable of all ducks, is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and sub-tropical areas of North America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand (where it is currently the most common duck species), and Australia. It is strongly migratory in the northern parts of its breeding range, and winters farther south. For example, in North America it winters south to Mexico, but also regularly strays into Central America and the Caribbean between September and May.

Hello Tom, a good close-up shot of Mrs Mallard. It is a little soft / unsharp, as I think you are focusing on her bill. But keep on practicing - these birds are good models for us,
Thank you for sharing
