Around this part of the world we are lucky enough to have a plethora of wildlife right in our back yard. After recently spending some time in pursuit of the Common Eider, I was able to track down this gorgeous Mallard Duck over the weekend as he swam through ice cold waters. I was lucky enough that he let me get this close as it is really something to see that beautiful green shine reflecting in the sun. Quack Quack!!
