I found this on an unsaved SD card in my camera, it’s from late last summer. I am glad I found it. I remember this encounter well. I was walking up to the shoreline with my eye on something out in the lake, neither the wood duck or I noticed how close we got until we were only a foot or so apart. Being a gentleman, and knowing the minimum distance of my lens, I immediately backed off to take this shot. The wood duck, probably protective of its mate, never stopped its stare as I walked off down the path.
