You Gotta Love a Wood Duck

The highlight of our short visit to Salmon Creek had to be seeing the pair of Wood Ducks that had obviously become too acclimated to people.

A few weeks before in Fresno I was disappointed that I didn’t have a camera because of the rain when we saw two pairs of Wood Ducks in the park.  

It’s been a long time since I’ve photographed a Wood Duck, and I don’t think I’ve ever photographed one as cooperative as this one.

So, I couldn’t resist taking more shots from different angles

than I usually would.  

I found it difficult to decide which shots to process and post here.  Usually I delete any photos I don’t post, but in this case, I’ll save all the pictures I took of this guy.
