Two Mallard Drakes getting some practice in for the Olympics! I headed to the park early in the morning to get some shots of the wildlife, when I approached the bottom end of the lake, I heard an immense amount of splashing so went to investigate. This Mallard was there, throwing himself around, having a great time playing in the freezing water. He even gave me time to get in position and set up my camera whilst he continued his 'showing-off'. Such a poser!

Thanks Gareth! yeah, I'm everywhere these days, good to see you here too mate!
@ Fefe. It is the same duck but I have him doing the same thing facing left AND right so I merged them together, It's not the same image flipped/duplicated. These are two separate shots.
