THIS “DRAKE MALLARD” CAME UP CLOSE TO WHERE I WAS FISHING. I FIGURED IF HE WASN’T AFRAID OF ME BEING CLOSE TO HIM, THEN I WOULD TRY TO GET HIS PORTRAIT. I THINK THE COLORS ON A DRAKE MALLARD ARE GORGEOUS. THE GREEN OF HIS HEAD IRRODESSES IN THE SUN LIGHT. THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN AT PARDEE RESEVOIR IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WHILE MY LADY FRIEND AND I WERE TRYING FOR SOME NICE TROUT TO TAKE HOME FOR DINNER. I GOT THE SHOT OF THE MALLARD, BUT THE TROUT FOR DINNER DIDN’T HAPPEN.
