Listen to its call.
Recently, I joined my husband on his run around Elk Lake. Oh sorry .... that sounds a bit misleading. To be more exact, I went with my husband to Elk Lake where I took pictures of ducks while he ran around the lake. I do have my priorities, you know. Unfortunately, this pair of ducks never came close enough to the shore for me to get a better picture than this one. At least it gives you a sense of their colouring and unique profile. Unfortunately, though, it doesn't show the wave-like pattern on the male's back and sides, which supposedly resembles canvas fabric (hence the name).
