[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A male wood duck(Aix sponsa) enjoys a quiet paddle in a algae thickened pond.

They always look like they've been on a week long alcoholic bender with those blood red eyes that they have. At any rate and as you can see - he already had spotted me hiding in the reed grass and didn't come any closer ... could have used 1.4x tc on this one.
