WOOD DUCKS TAKING A BREAK (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

12 Comments

These female wood ducks were taking a break from the group, pausing on fallen tree trunks just off shore. Wood ducks are less boisterous than the more common mallards and though striking in appearance remain quite quiet as you pass by. As the season progresses they seem to be less shy and will often remain still long enough for me to take a lot of photos.

  1. Fat and contented, no longer edgy during breeding, or just used to the summer visitors, I wonder?

  2. I remember the morning my mother said to me, “You aren’t going to believe this but I saw a duck in the tree!”

  3. Very nice! The little flashes of color on the Wood Ducks are so appealing and those logs are perfect props for any duck.

  4. The nut grass in your first photograph looks very similar to the plants that grow in South Africa.
