More Wood ducks

wood duck pair on dead tree in water

There are a couple of areas in the bird sanctuary that offer the kind of vegetation seen in this image of a pair of wood ducks (Aix sponsa). It makes for great cover for shy ducks, and I really like how the thin branches and grasses drape into or near the water, providing a background that offers interest as well as blending nicely and naturally into black, one of my favorite backgrounds for post processing.

  1. Everything about this is amazing; the clarity, the colors, the almost painterly texture, the darkened background. I have yet to see a photo of yours that I do not like!
