Girls Girls Girls

Girls rock.

Hens Rock!

Females that is - or in this case hen mallards. In the world of waterfowl, it seems as though the males of the species seem to have been universally endowed with all the gaudy colors and ostentatious iridescence that nature can bestow.

I admit to harboring a penchant for the ladies, however. Smaller overall weight and less muscle mass makes for more fluid shapes, graceful lines, and light movements. Hens are where it's at. Who's with me?

  1. Pat - thanks for being comment nĂºmero uno on this post. Drakes get all the love but there's a lot to be said about the unobtrusive girl-next-door look.
