Walking along the Boise River just banging around my son spotted these wood ducks. Couldn't get closer than 40 yards but they are such pretty ducks though you might want to see even though not the best shots.

I think these are merganzer. Neat looking birds which are much bigger on land than they look in the water. These guys were pretty wary and only got up to about 50 yards on them.

Beautiful ducks indeed, zoomn, almost unreal in color and you've captured that color; the background foliage simply puts the finishing touch on a great composition. I love the two on one perch pose as well. My does this look like a great place for a stroll.
