Contrast 1of 4: Duck & Drake, Paimpont Lake

There are several teams of ducks on the lake, though sadly for the last few years the drakes have heavily outnumbered the ducks. I hope that this pair's young will include at least one female.

I wonder if there is a reason the drakes have outnumbered or it's just one of those things that evens out over a number of years. I do like the contrast here, well done!

Too many drakes will invoke a lot of contest in Spring time! I pity the ducks!

Impossible to know why we have so many drakes and so few ducks. This is a large lake, the total duck population is considerable, yet the ratio duck:drake is greatly imbalanced. Friends and l have noticed that the imbalance is becoming more pronounced and doesn't augure well for the future of our ducks.

I think this duck looks particularly fecund... maybe good things are in the wind.

I like how the differences are apparent even in b&w. Nicely done.

A lot of birds made the contrast shots. Handsome mallard
