Preening in the mirror

So I spotted some geese standing at the edge of the ice on Pike Lake.  Then I heard a quack.

And I spotted a hen mallard sunning herself on a nearby dock.

Soon I heard a more distant quack.  And the quacking got closer as I spotted a drake mallard swimming a beeline towards the hen.  I knew the drake would try to get up by the hen, so I waited for the jump. As soon as he splashed to jump, I snapped the shot.  He startled the hen and she took off.
