Adaptable Mallards

Mallards are very good at using their environment as camouflage: here a couple rest amongst horrible assorted debris and floating plastic rubbish in the river slack water. Maybe the ducks feel they are less likely to be attacked by the terribly fierce mink here. Maybe the drake is hiding his mate from other dabbling suitors.
