Wood duck hen in-flight

This one was coming right at me. I liked water color in the background. Not as gaudy as the Drake.

Love the head on landing pose. Great details with a nice background. Can’t ask for anything more.

The head on or comin’ atcha view is awesome. The comp is very nice. Hen wood ducks are just as pretty as the males. There’s something elegant about them. Well done…Jim

Terrific action shot, David and all the techs are there. Well done.

Woah, what a great shot! Fantastic reflexes and command of your gear. She looks a treat. The water droplets are a really nice touch.

Spot on focus there, David. Well done. This is a great action image.

Hi Dived
As stated in the above comments, the detail in the head-on shot is great and l love the water droplets.

Another excellent image, David. The head on pose is always high energy and this one is no exception.

All said above! The BG is lovely and with perfect colors for the duck.

You are getting some remarkable shots of Wood Ducks. This one especially. Keep posting them.
