Taking A Break


The Mallards at James Gardens were taking a break from searching and begging for food. There was a lot of grooming going on as they seem to be molting as evidenced by all the feathers you can see on the ground around them. This post of the ducks is for a special follower who loves to see them.

If that were down here I'd say they are exhausted by the heat. But up there I guess they're just resting (as a character in a famous Monty Python spoof would say.)

Looks like the Mallard's pond dried up. A fine looking flock.

I always enjoy seeing that little flash of vibrant colour on their tail feathers Pat 💜

Sometimes it seems like every living thing is constantly foraging for food. So it is pure delight to see any creature taking a break!
