  1. Superb photo!
    These beautiful birds are intelligent and pretty much mate for life.
    It’s unfortunate that my brother-in-law, as well as some nephews and their friends, are avid duck hunters.

    • Thanks. You have mentioned your brother-in-law’s hunting hobby a few times, Thomas. We have killed game since the year dot, and all the meat we eat has first to be killed. I daresay that all your brother-in-law’s kills are eaten, which is good. Eat more ducks, and kill fewer cattle. 😉

    • To maintain my meat eating ligestyle,Thomas, I must continue to condone killing of animals lower in the food chain than me. I also like wslnuts and broccoli, and practically all other foodstuffs. However, I am not keen on brains and rice pudding

  2. Though I’m a vegetarian, I’m not as against eating meat as one might think. (I even take Krill tablets for the DHA, which many vegetarians are critically lacking.) However, I am very fond of wild ducks and geese and do not feel that it is right to shoot them, largely due to their extreme intelligence and close-knit family structures. Most humans on this planet are vegetarian, and are doing well… and it is tremendously more easy on the environment as a whole… (but enough of that). I don’t like rice pudding either (or any rice for that matter); rice is full of arsenic (from the oil spills) here in the USA. 😉

    • Thank you, Cara. Herons I disturb rarely make a noise; they nearly always see me before I get anywhere near them.

    • He was coming in fast, Inga. I don’t know why, but mallards do approach North Pond very quickly and hit the water with a thump.
