STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WOOD DUCKS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

18 Comments

Of all the ducks at the reserve last year, wood ducks were there in the greatest numbers, mallards usually outnumber all other ducks but not this past season. By late summer you could get closer to the wood ducks than earlier in the year without frightening them off. The lake has many inlets and coves with plenty of perches the ducks like to climb onto, making for some wonderful backdrops.

  1. I love the bird’s understated colours and the light in these shots is perfect. She looks to have such a gentleness about her.

  5. The hens have that distinctive light circle around the eye. Not as flashy as the drakes but still very pretty. You seem to have caught her tipping her head at you ever so slightly with a questioning look.

  8. Love that she is out of the water on that earthy log and your shot includes her feet. We don’t see that too often in Wood Ducks–usually it’s their butts as they swim away! Very nice!
