Domestic Mallard with a hidden face – Nikon D500, f8, 1/800, ISO 500, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light
Down at my local pond there are many wild and domesticated ducks and hybridization between the wild ducks and the domesticated ducks occurs frequently. I call those wild x domestic hybrids “manky mallards”. Even though I prefer photographing the wild ducks I will also take images of the domesticated ducks at times too, especially when they come up so close that I can take portraits of them.
Ten days ago I photographed a manky mallard at my local pond and when I pulled images of it up on my monitor I discovered that it has a hidden “face” and once I saw it I couldn’t un-see it. Do you see it? Leave a comment if you do!
Life is good. Having an active imagination makes it even more interesting.
