The Wood Duck drake in all its glorious breeding colours. A somewhat shy duck, it can be a challenge to get a decent shot of one - at least for me Smile

Had to delete my previous post of this morning as a member quite rightly pointed out some deficiencies. Hope this is a suitable replacement.

Thanks for stopping by, and for your continued support.
