“The Coy Miss Mallards” at

There’s something highly engaging, and perhaps a little unsettling, about the way these young female Mallards make eye contact with us over their shoulders from behind their wing feathers, notes Emil. He thinks that this painting transmits an enhanced feeling of avian intelligence and alienness quite different from our usual sense of dabbling ducks.
