Two Ducks on a Date

Two Ducks on a Date

These two mallards were incredibly sweet, down stream from the rest of the group and slowly circling an area of the creek as if they were graceful ice-skaters skating arm in arm and just getting to know each other. Later they were really funny in their little mallard mating dance, he bobbing his head up and down and she lowering her head to the water level in approval—I wish I’d had the chance to get a little video but I was too far away. Then after that was finished they kissed under water, or is this the equivalent of one soda and two straws? On Chartiers Creek in Carnegie, PA.

  1. This is a wonderful pic. Spring is definitely in the air. Your storyline with the ducks is superb!
