Mallard Spray

A female Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) lifts out of the Bow River at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary in Calgary, Alberta to shake the water off of her wings.

A female Mallard duck stretches out of the water to shake the water off of her wings. My friend Jeff (his photography website) and I were down at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary that is in the middle of Calgary on one side of the Bow River to photograph the birds that overwinter there. There are hundreds of Canada Geese and Mallards on the water at any time. The Sanctuary is a great place to watch their natural behaviour with very few disturbances.
