Uhhh, sorry to correct ya bud, but those are 100% not Wood ducks. I would say you either have a hen Mallard or a Black Duck here. But keep posting pics, it makes us feel good to correct people. :-)

Excellent shots ... I love it when folks actually take the time to get down to the right level to get a great shot! Beautiful shot of the wood duck .... there's just something about those colors that I always have to take an extra minute to look at. I 've got a shot of one that I tookat the St. Louis Zoo a couple of months ago.

Hope you like!

Ron

'Hope you like! Ron'

Thanks for the picture. A swimming wood duck is difficult to shoot; should say, swimming creatures are difficult to shoot. You got it sharp and well framed.

I find it especially difficult to getshotsthat havethe focus well done on the eyes of these creatures, so for close-ups,good shots are, in my view,thosewith sharp focus on the eyes.

Hope you like this one. Is it a pochard?
