Mallard_Female_009_J1F0157

A very mild winter had this female Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) and her mate acting like breeding season was just around the corner. Her mate stayed close by most of the time. But having finished a round of preening, he wandered off. Once she had finished preening, it was time for a good stretch.
