LOL That's a welcoming pose he gave you Alok!!

Such pretty iridescence they have on their plumage, don't they. Many thanks for showing him to us.

An interesting scene from the lives of these fascinating looking ducks - the light falling on the wings of the duck shaking her wings dry, show cases the iridescent plumage beautifully, Alok, thank you! 🙂
... thank you, Deb ...
