Duck reflection

We are having to do quite a bit of watering due to this dry spell so had to transfer water from the bottom dam to the top dam. As I was getting the pump ready, a solitary Black Duck was paddling along at the opposite end of the dam and as we don't see them on the dam that often, had to record the moment.
Black ducks Anas superciliosa are widespread in Australia as well as being found in Indonesia, New Zealand, New Guinea and across Polynesia. Next to the Wood Duck they are the most seen duck in our area and as well as farm dams they are found around Wallis Lake as they don't seem to mind the salt water environment.
