Boys will be boys...

  1. Boys will be boys... even if they're ducks.

    Do you remember dunking other kids in the pool, or pulling a little girl's pigtails when you were a little tad? Well I learned today
    that ducks do the same thing!

    I spotted this practical joker mallard, who was obviously looking for trouble.


    A minute later, a prim lassie cruised by.

    It was a little unfair, because he outweighed her, but being a gentleman was the last thing on his mind. He finished off the
    dunking by pulling the poor girl's pigtail... the rascal :twisted:.

    I'm glad to say Miss Mallard didn't appear to be injured by the attack. She just shook it off and went about her business.
