Morning Tex oh yes the most recognized indeed. When we were kids my Mom raised tame ones and the wild ones would come visit every year for weeks. Love your pics. Hug B
Wonderful mallard photographs! Seeing mallards in your pond must be a real treat!Happy Mew Year's Eve, Teresa!Angel
Aren't they beautiful? I have about a dozen who stop by to visit (and be fed). I just love their little quacking, waddling bodies heading toward me... I mean, heading toward the corn!
Good Morning, Tex! I love the shiny green head of the male Mallard. They are beautiful even if they are common.Wishing you all the best in 2014, Happy New Year to you and yours!
Yep, he sure is purdy:@)
Even they are common, they are so beautiful!
That is true - beautiful ducks.
Now, I don't mind watching this type of 'duck dynasty'.
We have them here in the brook. Those drakes are a colorful bunch.
love the beautiful oolors on these mallards. Funny that yesterday I was out getting photos of the same. The green on this drake is just amazing.
They are beautiful and often fun to watch.Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.Best wishes Molly
I have countless pictures of the Mallard but take more whenever I get the chance. It is a stunning bird and your pictures of it are fantastic.
Beautiful ducks :)
Beautiful pictures, love Mallards, the sun shining on the Green head is amazing, Francine.
They bring so much color to a pond!
Handsome ducks, that's for sure!
The universal duck.Excellent.
They are beautiful ducks. I miss my lakefront. Happy to share yours!Cheers from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!
I agree! I think they are lovely!!
Beautiful pictures of the mallards.I wish you a good 2014 with a lot of photo fun.
we were visiting some friends several years ago who live near the Erie Canal and a pair of mallards showed up in their yard one morning hung around for about half a day and then went on their way. love the new header.
They really are stunning!
They are stunning aren't they . . . The greenish, shimmering Mallard's head is like no other. Great visitors "at the pond!"
They really are simply stunning.
They ARE stunningly beautiful!!
They are so beautiful -- we love to go to the lake near the university and watch them.
Yes, I know that one! And they do quack too!
Mimo iż jest ich dużo, ale tak je podziwiam i lubię. Pozdrawiam.Although there are many, but they admire and enjoy. Yours.
Good Morning Tex! The male is very handsome and the females are endearing in their muted dress.
Those feathers look iridescent, Tex. I agree, a beautiful duck. :-)
Beautiful photos!Happy New Year 2014!Lucia
They are indeed gorgeous! Yes, we even have them up here...Happy New Year to you!

Common but, outstanding beautiful.
Love the shimmery green you have captured.
i never get tried of ducks. my hubby loves them too. he had them as pets as a kid. ( :
Their green color makes each one spectacular. A fine duck to concentrate on for a post.
I love those shiny, green feathery heads!! Spectacular indeed!
My second favorite duck.Oh yeah...another winning pick this week.
Beautiful!! The sunlight captures the male's wonderful colors!
One of my favorite duck is the Mallard,Tex!!Beautiful pictures!!Great captures!!Dimi...
Very nice photos, I love that nice pair of ducks!
They really are pretty. I wonder when I stopped shooting them? They deserve more camera time than they get.
I love all ducks, but have a special fondness for Mallards!
They are the most common ducks in Minnesota I think. I love the iridescent green of the males head.
your right t, but i still get excited every, single, time i see them!!they are so handsmoe!!
Gorgeous ducks - would that all ducks had a great pond.
These are great. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope you're having a great Sunday.MersadMersad Donko Photography
Those are some shiney heads. I wonder what kind of feather product they use? Ha.
I love those Ducks. Have a happy New Year.
Magnifique post! Merci de tes passages sur mes pages. Bonnes fêtes de fin d'année !A bientôt, Cath.
The mallard duck is the first bird I can remember seeing. I've posted about this.
Yes they are stunning!
There is a flock sitting on the river as I type
Although they are rather common I think I like them the best!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com ¸.•*¨*•♪♫♫♪HAPPY NEW YEAR ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥
I love these, they have beautiful colours
They might be common, but I still love seeing them.
yes they are very beautiful.
I will miss my Mama Mallards, but at least the couple that bought our home are animal lovers. :) xoxo!
The world would be a poorer place without these lovely birds...I hope the new year brings you great health and joy.peter
Common and beautiful. Love the handsome male and the sweet faced female. M
So often, we pay little attention to "common" things, missing much beauty in the world. Thanks for reminding us to look closer at the beauty of these "common" ducks.
Common but so colourful and the only duck that takes food from little kids.
They are such beauties!...:)JP
They really are quite beautiful!
Ha ha well yes, you are absolutely right, however my husby will say it every single time, and he may be teasing but goodness. He will say look at those Geese when it is Mallards and he will say look at those Ducks when it is Canada Geese... Have a very Happy New Year sweet Theresa! We all appreciate you very much!
And one of the most hybridized. This is one bird we actually have a lot of around here. :-)
So very beautiful. You have captured them perfectly!
Jepp , we have them too :-)
I agree with you. They are really beautiful with its shiny grönba throats and necks. I wish you a good 2014/Brita
You have an incredible eye!
Mallards are dressed in such finery!
I am always amazed at the beauty of their green and how it has a sheen.
I was reading your opening lines about Mallards being the most common duck and the voice in my brain said "and the most beautiful" so I burst out laughing when I read those lines a moment later.
You are so lucky to have this view from your deck. Beautiful.
I love their beautiful green heads.
Awe, yes they are common but oh so pretty. And you certainly got some lovely shots of them. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a fantastic 2014!
Dearest Theresa,The Mallard Duck is lovely, their iridescent green head is a marvel!Hugs,Mariette
I love Mallards...
They are beauties! The lovely green of their heads is so unique.
That incredible shade of green on the teal's head is just wonderful.
Common things are the best, thats why God made so many of them :)
They are! I always see the female as having a wise smile in her eye. She always looks so placid.
hee hee...Eileen In Maryland has already written EXACTLY what «Louis» was going to write! :-)
They really are quite regal, aren't they?
I love their bright green head and yellow beak. Great shots!
They have always been one of my favorites!
So what kind of birds don't you get at the Run*A*Round Ranch!
Wonderful photos, Teresa!Greetings, RW & SK
Those were the only ducks we ever saw growing up in Minnesota (suburb of Mpls). You really caught the males glistening head! :)
I see them all the time but they still catch my attention. Lovely photos!
Ah yes! We have them too! Love the iridescent green!
Its shiny green head is awesome.
Bright and beautiful they are! Green and yellow makes them a stunner!
They are beautiful, too bad the male has all the colors!
birds and their colors...kind of amazing really.<3
Such beautiful birds!
Love those gorgeous green heads!
Beautiful! Love their shiny little green heads!
YES!! The male mallard is beautiful!! True emerald green color!!

You leave here very nicely how ordinary mallards still are very nice. The color ones especially the beautiful green head of the male is beautiful to see.
