Mallards on the River

Here is quick post as I need to get my walk to the office started. I have to make sure today that I don’t linger at the bridge today and take pictures like these.

There are some great reflections of the trees and sky in the river when it is smooth.

You can also clearly see the wake of the mallards as they swim upstream.

This was an evening picture and you can see the darkening sky.

I often see mallards around this log that is just by the bridge. I am sure that they finds some nice bugs that have been trapped by the debris.

Here is a group of four mallards. This picture looks pretty simple, but there are some cool shadows, colors and ripples in the water that make it interesting to me.

Now, off to the office.
