Another shot of my favourite duck - the Wood Duck. This was taken at twilight when the setting sun turned the water golden-green.

Thanks for stopping by, and for all your recent clix and comments.

On my screen the reflections are green rather than golden, but it is such a beautiful shot, with beautiful reflections, that I'll let that pass.

A Wood Duck would be much more quiet than the previous upload! Smile Watch out for splinters though. Smile

Love the VIVID colors. These are among my favorite ducks, for their character and colors. Isn't the beauty of nature just amazing???
