Mallards

I was walking along the river taking pictures of water fowls. Certain birds I come across will move away but some will take to air. For example I have been near mallards, within meters, they just go about their business. Then they are times I'm 40 to 50 meters away and they take to air as soon as they spot me. That's what happened with the attached picture, I was walking along the river when I spotted the three Mallard Ducks. I was talking their picture when they started to fly. Luckily I was able to get the attached picture, the female seems to be smiling as catching air.

Until next moment,
