Wood Duck and Ducklings (Two Photographs)

Wood Duck and ChicksTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

I took a lot of photos of ducklings and I will post them over time. This was one of those occasions when the mother took a break and the chicks fell asleep. Given the energy these young things have it’s not surprising that they need to recharge their batteries every so often. From a photographic perspective it is worth pointing out that these two pictures were taken a few minutes apart and the only thing that really changed was the cloud cover, which altered the lighting and color of the water. In the “green photograph” you will see a little squiggle on the right hand side of the log, if you enlarge the picture you will see it’s two damselflies mating.
