Handsome or lovely? When I originally wrote two separate the drafts for this post with these pictures I used different adjectives for the male mallard and the female mallard. But I do think they are both handsome and lovely even though I tend to think by gender. Lovely is associated with female and handsome with male. The pictures are taken at the same occasion by the canal in Malmö, Sweden. There were several ducks so I don´t know if these are a couple or not. But they are both lovely and handsome. More pictures at Camera Critters, Wild Bird Wednesday and The Bird D’Pot.
