Recently, I had the honor of witnessing the action on the Secret Hooded Merganser Courtship Grounds at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. I swear you could cut the duck pheromones in the air with a knife.
A drake gets ready to look really, really awesome.
The female sexpot awaits her courtship.
It begins. So sexy.
So fit. This merganser man could make some beautiful ducklings.
"Why don't you come at me bro?"
The winner, with new girlfriend. Hoods down.
