Mallard, Flapping

(Toledo, OH) The park down the end of my street is home to dozens of breeding pairs of Mallard ducks, and I often find solace watching the ducks and tossing some bird seed their way. While the water in the shallow creek does not resemble that which flows from stainless steel Grohe faucets, my aquatic friends do not seem to mind.

The October sun made the birds especially active today, and the low valley echoed with the honks and quacks of the assembled Mallards. I let the rays bounce of my face for a few minutes, cognizant that the number of such mild afternoons dwindles as the month progresses.
