Meet Lou the sweetest, oh well, the only male duck on a small pond close to home. Lou is married to Sue who we deduce is sitting on a nest full of eggs at the moment. Lou is courteous and polite and protective of Sue in just the right way.
He always prefers to make sure Sue has finished eating before he takes his meals. Standing guard and keeping his eyes open for predators.
Lou is amenable to having his portrait taken and over the course of a month or two we have indeed taken a few. A fine looking guy with a personality that is hard to beat.
So, meet Lou, the best male duck on the whole pond.
