We play with ducks when we bathe. This duck is doing a little of his own splashing around in a lagoon at Discovery Park. This is a bit of water between the beach and Puget Sound.
The trail passes on the east side of it. As I walked along I noticed this family of Mallards sunning and preening themselves.
It started with a little flapping and splashing by one of the boys
Then he took a little spin around the pond.
Next he started to warm up the splash machine again. See how the water is starting to oscillate?
Then he went into full-blown splashing around.
