Mallard Ballet at Dobbin's Landing





I had just planned on throwing some bread and rolls away that were left from a picnic we had had the weekend before when my husband came up with the great idea of taking our daughter and grandson down to Dobbin's Landing to feed the ducks! While they enjoyed the feast I noticed some of the ducks sticking their heads under the water and coming up to spread their wings and dry off. The sun was starting to go down and the light played nicely off the beautiful mallards. I thought I'd like to get a few shots of this activity and waited and watched for a duck that seemed to be "dunking" itself. My patience paid off and I did get a few shots of this Mallard Ballet.

I can't wait to get back home and back to Presque Isle for walks and getting photos. Wishing the people I am staying with were birders. The ballet mallards look great.

And they say swans are graceful. I loved the ballet.
