Valentine’s Day is still a few days away, but it appears love is already in the air in the Steveston area.

Richmond News reader and avid amateur photographer Urey Chan spotted a little dalliance taking shape on the South Dyke Trail yesterday.

Chan said he noticed a female duck waddling up to a group of male mallards sitting opposite Shady Island.

He said the female then “struck a pose” Madonna-style for the benefit of one of the boys.
