One of the most photographed animals in the world, Mallard Duck. I myself have hundreds of photographs. They are (almost) everywhere.
I say ‘almost’ because marshes and swamps here have almost none.
Now when I see one I make a point of getting closer.

I’ve just finished writing a post about these underrated ducks myself. I think they are fantastic birds and for many people they are a first chance to engage with wildlife in urban spaces.
They are probably the first bird anyone photographs. Everyone loves them 😀😀
