Default Flying Mallard

He jumped up from the reeds in front of me and flew off.

Great shot, never realized they have that purple spot on the wings.

Saly you had me google Mallard and look at some pics. I knew the bluish purple was on the wing but just realized you dont see it when the wings are folded like when they are in the water or walking around. But when they spread their wings it just pops out.

Mallards are the most common ducks, but I think they are one of the most beautiful I never get tired of seeing good shots of them. Nice one!

Thanks wildlife and kev. This was a really surprising shot for me. I was just standing there and was completely unaware a male and female were lying in the reeds for at least a couple hours. They suddenly bolted and I just raised my camera and clicked the shutter. Lucky everything was set right. Pure dumb luck.
