Wood Duck


I think Wood Ducks are one of the best looking ducks with their bright colours. Every winter we see one or two in the city. This male wood duck is at Quidi Vidi Lake, quite comfortable with the other ducks and gulls.

Beautiful bird. Nice exposure on his front end, a bit dark on his back end...but I'd be happy with this.

Nice use of light. I like how the front of the duck is lit up. Nice colours and sharpness.
