A duck rumble

.

Our pair of visiting mallards is so cute. The male follows the female around the yard like a lost puppy and sits patiently while she nibbles.

.

.

But then….

.

.

Two rival males arrived.

.

.

He chased them, he flew at them, he put his head down and charged them but nothing worked.

.

.

They just kept moving closer.

.

.

Right after I took this picture he went full ninja duck on their ass and finally drove them off. The Mrs? She was not impressed and simply kept eating.
