Mallard Duck Eating An Acorn
Photograph - Photograph
A wild mallard duck on a snow-covered bank along the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon, tryng to consume an acorn. Winter is a difficult time for most wild animals and mallards are no exception. Using his bill like a snow shovel, this beautiful drake found a treasure that a squirrel had probably misplaced, and did his best to crack the hard shell with his bill. He was not successful and finally gave up his prize. The image was taken with a 600 mm Zeiss lens mounted on a Sony RX 10 Mark IV camera.
