Ahhhh that I want, as of yet I haven't seen a wood duck. This capture is superb my friend, amazing colours and details in his plumage are brought out exquisitely.
Great work John.

Hi John,this is a fine looking drake and handsome fellow.This duck and the Mandarins sure rank high as the most colourful birds that there are.The details are many and varied in this image with good focus and it just lacks a little richness in the saturation and stronger shadows to make it pop out,still I like this seldom seen species here in Alberta.Have you seen the females with their neat looking "Cleopatra" eyes,they are also very nice to see and cannot be mistaken for any other just like the males.A nice photo to grace TN with,thanks for giving us the chance to see him.
Hi John , another fine capture of a seldom seen here bird , I have never seen one myself other than in photos , but have heard of them being seen in the Calgary bird sanctuary , bit of a long walk for me though ;-) ...
it is a good photo with fair detail , nice color and composition , I love the colors of this bird , especially that red eye.
I sometimes find myself curious as to what lens you are shooting with?

A great capture of this male wood duck, John!
One of my favorite birds!
An excellent POV that shows off all the beautiful colors and markings.
The light colored rocks make a nice BG to show off the subject.
TFS. : )
