The prize. This feisty little lady
The winner. After a lot of pecking and splashing in the lake the other drake swam off and this one came ashore to claim the prize.
Happy ever after? Somehow I doubt it. They make a fine pair, but I don't think she is the faithful type.
There are more drakes than ducks on the Jephson Gardens lake, and in spring the drakes are constantly bickering over the ducks.
