Female Wood Duck
« on: May 04, 2021, 11:14:21 am »

The male wood duck with its beautiful colors is a favorite of photographers.  I wanted to give the female wood duck a bit of love.  I captured this image just before she mated.
The picture was taken in the late afternoon light.  Comments welcomed.

sf, you put a big fat smile on my face.  My wife allows me to look but never touch.
