Photographer's Note

A couple of white mallards, Anas platyrhynchos. If you're wondering how I can tell that it's a pair, look at the tails. The female - in front - doesn't have the two little curls above the tail that the male has.
As Jeppe stated not so very long ago, these white mallards are pretty rare, and it's the first time I've seen them in our local area. Fortunately, they weren't shy and stayed within shooting distance for quite a while, allowing me to take a number of photos.
Treatment: Crop, Contrast +10, saturation +10, USM and resize.
-----------
Clarification: These are not rare as kept (domestic) birds in Denmark, but these two are free. They live with a bunch of ordinary mallards on the Brabrand Lake.
