These are the ducks:
There are, of course, many many more but they seem to go around in this formation. 3 males ducks following 1 female duck. Sounds dodgy? It IS dodgy. Some would say she is lucky to have 3 bodyguard ducks, I just personally think she is using them. *whoamitoknow*
They will swim around with her in the pond:
They will always be there. Maybe not in plain sight:
But they will be there. Watching. Waiting. Waddling.
I'd like to think that one of the ducks eventually has the courage to go for it with the female and make eggs together:
But I imagine his buddies won't be too pleased with that. In fact, the story does not go like that at all. They, erm, share her. If you are a child, this means they all fall in love and live happily ever after. If you are an adult, you already know what I mean. Its a sad sad story.
I guess after all that, a duck needs a snack:
This guy fancies Prawn Cocktail flavour today. Good choice. I should probably think this is wrong to see a duck each such junk food but I'm sure he will have sufficient exercise to burn it off. Some ducks aren't quite partial to crisps. Instead they will opt for cookies:
This is where I would draw the line. I share my cookies with no one. No matter how cute it may look, it will eat my shoe before it eats my cookie!
