I thought this duck was some unusual breed. I was standing on huge rocks in a Toronto Harbor and the colours of the water were crazy beautiful. It wasn't till I got home that I saw the iridescent blue on his head and realized that I was looking at a Mallard in it's eclipse stage of development. Which is what you call it when a duck is no longer a chick and is turning into the last stage as an adult. This young bird in his environment with these beautiful colours just had to be painted.
