About Today’s Photo:
The small bay that we were anchored in at the south end of larger Willsboro Bay had a resident flock of mallards. Most looked to be juveniles, and they puttered about the shoreline dabbling for goodies in the shallow water. They had a good choreographer as it seemed they go butts-up in unison in a rather comical way.
