White Rock lake, Sunset Bay beach
I was standing on the Sunset Bay beach wondering if I'd see the new exotics that had shown up when they suddenly came flying here from the other side of the lake. They landed in the shallow water and walked up on the beach. This gives you a look at their size compared to a mallard, plus what they each look like from the back. Small ducks. You can see the iridescence of the male head and the fact that he has more color on his side.
