Duck, scratching an itch

I heard the "honk" of ducks approaching while I was standing on the edge of a pond. Three ducks appeared, paddling quickly. The male stayed in the water while the females waddled onto land, moving quite close to the silent human (me!) standing on the shore. They quickly turned to face the water and just as quickly started scratching an itch.

What beautiful feathers!
