These wood ducks were taken at Burnaby Lake in their usual perch. Hard to get a good shot with the many branches around and in front.

You have done a great job with this shot, Doug. All of the ducks are well focused and sharp showing every detail in their wonderful plumage. It so nice to see 2 females and 2 males, obviously friends! Lovey composition.

Hi Dough,
Nice shot. Lovely mood setting and nice composition. Good colors and details.

hello Doug,
That'a nice scene with all these ducks on the tree. For me it looks quite unusual.
Nice natural colours.
best regards

Good scenery...
Are they negotiating?(kidding)
TFS Doug.

Hello Doug!
Very nice documentary photo, especially that it was taken in the wild! :) Even with 1 individual this photo would be interested and here we can observe 4! :)
Deatils, POV and colours are really good.
TFS and Best greetings,

What a lovely picture! Ha,ha. I had never seen a duck upon a branch, but these two pairs look very comfortable there.
Wonderful capture with excellent sharpness and marvellous color! I love the composition.
My compliments and thanks for sharing.

Great photo. Along with the Mandarin Ducks, the Wood Ducks are definitely the most beautiful ducks.

Beautiful capture, Doug. Nice composition, and the DoF works great with the beigh/brown bg. I even like the overhanging branches.

bonjour Doug

belle composition de ces couples de canards branchu perchés,
belle netteté des canards, j'aimes les couleurs
chaudes de l'arrière-plan
