The Steadfast Mallard Duck, On Duty at the Swan Nest

He has assigned himself the job of watching over the Swan nest.  He is always there.
His mate is there also, often just out of the picture.
His work comes first, she knew that when she got involved with him.
See him on the board?  The swans can rest while he is watching.
He chases the interlopers away.  Who did they think they were?
A brave and loyal and noble duck.  Handsome, too.
Everyone is waiting for the swan babies to hatch now.
It won't be for a few of weeks.
We can wait easier knowing the duck is on duty.
Here is a whole set of pictures of the Swan nest in the city http://www.flickr.com/photos/chloe-and-ivan/sets/72157629250352920/ ♥Chloe
