Impressing the girls!

By accipiter  
Many thanks for all the CC's on my last upload and special thanks to Vikram (Bantu) for the precious UA.
I have been busy with various scans and consultations but going ok.
A couple of weeks ago I uploaded pics of drake waterfowl crowding their ladies to impress them before pairing. Here are a couple more - the ladies really do get 'boxed in' but don't seem to mind,
V1 are Wigeon at 3:1. V2 are Shovellers at 6:1 and v3 are wigeon at 5:1. Courting is hard work for ducks! I hope you like them. A
