This is a Mallard Duck on Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, MI.  It was a calm and peaceful day in the early evening, and I just saw this duck sitting in the water, and thought it would make a good picture.

A few years ago I took these photos in June or July, on the same Michigan lake featured in my photo “Sailboat on a Lake”. I was just walking along the beach when all of a sudden this duck family walked out into the water not far from me. The ducklings were very young, and did not have adult feathers yet. I didn’t realize that young ducks were spotted, but when you think of it, it makes sense, for camoflage reasons.
