We have wood ducks in upper Michigan, but they are very hard to photograph because they are in the wild
and are very skiddish and fly when they see humans.
So, when we went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Florida in February
I was thrilled to see they had some that weren't as shy that I could photograph.
I am convinced that when The Creator made ducks, he/she decided to use all the colors
of the rainbow to make this most colorful one!:
"So, crazy photo-taking lady, are you DONE YET??":
I thanked them!
I love, love, love those ducks and was thrilled they let me photograph them.
What lovely creatures they are! Thanks for sharing them.
ha i like your theory...i think you just might be right...they are beautiful...
I'd be like you...you can never take too many photos because you might get one just a little better if you keep shooting!
but they are all lovely...just stunning! you continue to amaze me :)
thanks for sharing such a beautiful moment~
every single one of these photos is absolutely stunning!!! love them all, i love these ducks to and God made the ducks and the gorgeous swirling water they are swimming in. great post
The males are so gorgeous! How great that they let you photograph them!
The Wood Ducks are gorgeous,but the patterns on the water are equally fantastic.I found myself looking at these as much as at the ducks.A lovely post.
Aren't they amazing creatures? We have a solitary male wood duck that comes around here. He seems to have paired up with a female mallard. Your photos are wonderful.
I think you can find every color of the rainbow in a duck..and then the light changes and so do the colors..they are so beautiful:)
They don't look real! Hence, their name, huh. Dumb me.
Laughed at your commentary.
What beautiful ducks and great shots! Did you use a tripod to get such crystal clear shots?
That's the same reason all my photos of these guys are made at our local aviary, no way I can get this close in the wild.
Great shots Joan, you captured the colors beautifully. They are one of the most colorful ducks I have ever seen.
Some of these photos have picked up awesome colors from the reflections on the water. Really goes well with a very flashy bird!
Truly a work of art!!
The water was rippling perfectly for you that day.
I absolutely love the colors of these ducks and how crisp the colors look in your photos. Thanks for sharing!
