Wood Ducks (Two Photographs)

I wrote this post on May 5th looking at another five days of rain. The wood ducks probably love the rain apart from the fact there are few if any people feeding them. Five years ago the wood ducks were a bit scarcer and were a much-anticipated arrival in spring. Now they seem to have made a home in our local reserve and breed here and we see them sooner in the year and later into the year than before. They make for marvelous photography; the detail and colors in their feathers are remarkable. To make things easier they come close enough that photographing them does not require a very long telephoto lens.
