Wood Ducks (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Wood ducks are not uncommon where I live, but the males almost always cause a fuss among viewers because their colour is so spectacular. I never gave it much thought about why they were called wood ducks, until I saw one fly out of tree. That’s where they nest and apparently how they got their name. I have taken several wood duck shots and I will put a few up over the next week or so.Some subjects you just cannot avoid photographing. And yes his female companion does not look like she is in a good mood, although in fairness that may be the result of my selective focus.

  1. I love wood ducks and am lucky to have just moved to where I can see them. Thanks for the info about their nesting habits. Unusual for a duck.
