Every spring, we always get a few ducks visiting our backyard koi pond. Usually just common mallards, the ducky couples are fun to watch. My hubby always puts out cracked corn for our guests, and some of the ducks get so tame that they march up to our back door quacking if the bowl is empty.
But one early May evening, my hubby came rushing into the house telling me to grab my camera. A brightly colored Mandarin Duck had landed in our backyard. We'd never had a duck like this visit - ever!
So of course I charged out to the backyard and snuck up the pretty duck. But it was so focused on helping himself to our corn bowl, he didn't mind the crazy camera lady following him around.
I took dozens of shots, but these two turned out to be my favorite. I'm posting them here for you to enjoy too.
Have a great weekend!
