Additional Information

The mallard duck is the world's most common, most numerous, and best known duck.  It is the common ancestor from which almost all domestic ducks have derived.  It can be one of the wildest and most wary of ducks, and it is also the most easily tamed.  Almost every city park with a pond has its resident mallards.

The mallard is extremely sociable - the drake mates with just about anything that does not get away.  Hybridization between the mallard and the tame muscovy and the wild black duck is very common.  The offspring of such unions are fertile.  The mallard has also been known to cross with the pintail, baldpate and green-winged teal.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
