Wood Duck

Aix sponsa

Description:

On a day filled with rain and clouds... an opportunity finally showed itself to me and my son. While looking for a Great Blue Heron, the clouds broke, and a shaft of light shown down upon a little pond, a pond filled with Wood Ducks. I had never been able to photograph these guys in good light before, or had ducks that cooperated. This day I had both.
