Last Sunday I visited a nice pond that is part of a large Recreations Park. There I had the opportunity to photograph some ducks and geese. The ducks were mostly Pekin white ducks and there were some Mallard ducks as well.
The water in the pond was the color of mud. Rain water from previous days are being fed from creeks which are carrying mud from the fields. For me it was the first time I see this pond this way, like a pond of chocolate. The sun was brilliant and the sky was blue. The reflection of the sky on the brown pond was quite picturesque. You’ll notice this effect on my pictures I’m posting today.
At the edge of pond I saw some ducks laid on nests and a group of Mallards not interested to go in the water. I think that all ducks are more interested on breeding at the moment.
