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!
