Caught this before I had my surgery. Just got around to looking at it. Nothing spectacular here. Just funny (not to the female mallard I am certain). This female mallard came flying in wide open with two males hot on her tail. One of them grabbed the tail and all three went into the water. They (yep, they) would hop on her back and try to mate with her. I thought they were going to drown her. I watched once as they kept her head under the water for a good 90 seconds. They would get to the edge, she would squirm out, then they would catch her and do it all over again. Went on for a good 10 minutes. Would not even post it but every time I look at it I think, "what exactly does the rear Mallard think he is doing" and a few other not so clean thoughts ensue......Reminds me of the doe and buck photo from a few years ago.....


Like I said, too far away for anything useful but thought I would share
