A Mottled Duck taking an afternoon nap.

I think it interesting that most birds rest on one leg instead of two.

I also think it's interesting that most birds tuck their bill/beak under their feathers while resting.

And like most birds, this Mottled Duck periodically opened it's eye to make sure it was still safe from predators.
