Mallard ducks were a part of my childhood menagerie and seeing wild mallards gives me great pleasure.
These ducks live where the river flows into the ocean. I've gone several time to cast actual bread on the water and there is one pair of ducks who rather than wait in the water, as most of this flock does, waddle right up to my feet and stand ready to eat a little more sourdough than seems wise. Maybe they are fly away pets?
Sometimes the sun just slips away...but not this evening...it was goodbye until tomorrow in a spectacular display.

I left my flash on for this shot...
I enjoy the photography of so many blogs I just felt like popping up some pretties for those who come back and visit me. I had trouble uploading for a few days. This sunset is October 17th...
