Young Mallard flapping his wings

Its was a hot afternoon in the garden of La Magalone, - 18th century bastide - next to Le Corbusier's Cité radieuse, in Marseille. I saw a young mallard enjoying himself in the water, flapping his wings. It was a funny scene. The joy and fun were perceptible in the young bird's eye.
