Look who came to swim in my pool. Mallard ducks.
This was quite a surprise. I didn't think I wanted Mallard ducks living in my pool.
I have a lot of wonderful critters that live in my yard, but ducks may be taking it a little too far.
You can see the male duck swimming amid the fallen white oleanders flowers in my pool like he owns the place.
In the last photo, you can see he was not real keen on me taking photos through my sliding glass door so he jumped out of the pool.
After a little while, they finally flew away.
I think they realized we had a pretty active backyard and did not want to share the space with the many rabbits, quail, lizards, and occasional coyotes passing through, etc.
