It’s funny to me, the little stories that play out in nature. We have a creek beside our property and the ducks find it the perfect spot to pair up and have ducklings every Spring. I’ve only seen Mallards around our place, but yesterday I spotted a new pair–a Mallard male, I call ‘Trouble’ and an American Black Duck, I call ‘Beauty.’ Trouble is quite smitten with Beauty–she doesn’t wander far from his sight. I was able to snap a few pictures of them yesterday before they wandered off into the tall grass near the creek.
I’ll keep you posted if any little ones appear soon. 🙂
