Florida is wall-to-wall Muscovies (v1) but a lot of Mallards too (v2). The Muscovies aren't very beloved because they are aggressive beggars and rather messy.

Hey Trev. they are ducks!! (quack, quack, orange sauce). The first one looks very much like my mother-in-law except it hasn't got a pointed hat and a broomstick.

If our paths cross mate you are on the the other half or twelve, washed down with a ruby Lol.

Clean shots mate

Trevor. They look like my type of Photo. Things that the purists do not consider as worth taking. Eric.
