These ducks were alongside the road, in a field that was flooded from recent rains. These puddles/ponds don't last long, the water soaks into the ground quickly and dry land emerges.
The new sprouts of grass partially hide the ducks
This was a fairly large pond of water - with lots of ducks
The reflection of their wake caught what little sunshine we had that day
These are Ring-Necked Ducks - if you look closely you can see a brown ring on their lower neck.
I love their blue, white and black tipped beaks
