Ring-necked Ducks

A short trip to a local wetlands this evening revealed that the expected "culprits" were present.  With mallards, wood ducks, hooded mergansers, and ring-necked ducks sighed only the ring-necked ducks afforded the opportunity for photographs.

A close look at this photo reveals the cinnamon neck band that the ring-necked duck is named for.

After a brief photo op the ringer pair swam away.

Lovely. It appears they just stopped by for their portraits to be taken.

First, I want to mention I really like your Header! The Ring-necks are gorgeous, as are your photos of them.

Even if only the ring-necked ducks were cooperative you got a couple of lovely photos!
