Beautiful ‘Greenies’

Today’s post features an image I captured on one of the Squaw Creek NWR (now called Loess Bluffs NWR) pools, in northwest Missouri, a few years ago.

Mallard drakes (males) are brilliantly colored when you can find them in good light. These Mallard drakes were cruising one of the refuge pools in beautiful, early morning light:
