Mallards fighting. 
It was a tricky one as they were very close to me sitting on the lawn. But I got both shots and a video. You see it below!
The ladies don´t seem to bother.

  2. Hello Monica,:=) Wow, They are really going for it! They usually fight over female ducks or perhaps food, but I haven't seen this behaviour myself. Grat photos, and video.

  9. What a beautiful video.
    The males can be quite aggressive.
    Fortunately, they let go of each other so that they were free.

  13. I've seen them fight over a female. Then they won't leave her alone. They get rough.

  15. wow- do they fight over the females all year round? Quite the kerfuffle and I am glad one finally waved the white flag!

  16. Those mallards can get quite stroppy! The more dominant one always makes me laugh when he runs along the ground after the other one with his head down. Not sure if it is concentration or to try and look scary.

  17. Yes, the males protect the females!
