Mottled Ducks

Mottled Ducks

When I saw a pair of ducks swimming in a small brook in Citrus Park I stopped to observe them. It took a while, but they got used to me and went about their business.

They both walked up on the bank and preened their feathers. As they did I made several photos and occasionally they would look my way because of the "beeping" as I focused the camera. I was lucky to capture a couple of photos as they  flapped their wings.

Though I have seen ducks with blue wing feathers around Holyrood, mottled ducks only live in Florida and states bordering the Gulf of Mexico.
