A pair of Mallard Ducks are residents here on the little farm pond. These ducks come and go frequently between this pond and the small private community lake that is nearly across the street from my place here. I was out with the camera this afternoon and saw the ducks flying around the pond to land at the quiet dam area. The other area of the pond was occupied by several Canada Geese. Ducks are especially quick in flight most of the time. I was fortunate to be in a good spot to catch the action. This is part 1 of 2 parts. The second part will be tomorrow and will feature the Canada Geese. Canada Geese are larger and are slower in flight so they are a bit easier to photograph while flying. I took these pictures in my yard on March 18, 2012 at about 5:00 pm. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
