This collection from Hekne is based on the colours of the Mallard, a dabbling duck widely distributed across the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Actually it is thought to be the most abundant duck on Earth.
The Mallard is 50-65 centimetres long and weights up to 1400 grams. While the female bird has a mainly brown-speckled plumage, the male is easily recognisable with his palette of strong colours: glossy green head, yellow bill, brown chest, white collar and iridescent blue speculum feathers.
The duck is commonly found close to water, where it dives down to 1-2 metres deep searching for food.
