Another Mallard

By strokebloke  
I'm gradually getting to know each of these duck individually, during the course of following this dredging operation for my website.
This young lady has always been reticent about being photographed [she's obviously camera shy].
Today I hid behind a tree and waited for almost 20 minutes for her to come near.
Well worth the wait, in my opinion. Smile

Is this something to aim for, Lillian? I did not do so deliberately GrinGrin
I must confess that I did lift the eye a little in PS. Acceptable practice, I think (hope) Smile
