Mallard Drake

This is a friendly Mallard drake (Anas platyrhynchos) that approached me when I visited my local park. Some of the ducks that live along the river here have lost their fear of humans because so many people offer them food. The city authorities have tried to discourage this behavior by making it illegal to feed the waterfowl in the park, but people often do it anyway.
