Now stretch...

This mallard was going through a bathing routine, dunking under the eater and preening its feathers.
Then it stretched its head way back.
Interesting to watch.
Anas platyrhynchos
Ducks are strong fliers; migrating flocks of Mallards have been estimated traveling at 55 miles per hour.
The standard duck’s quack is the sound of a female Mallard. Males don’t quack; they make a quieter, rasping sound.
