Sunday Evening Surprise
Finding a couple of free hours Sunday evening I headed to the local wetlands eager to see if any young ducks were about. As I moved into position I spotted a wood duck hen leading a large brood along the water's edge screened by the overhanging brush. Disapointed that I was unable to photograph the young woodies I hid along the shoreline hoping for activity to develop. Some time later this colorful male swam into view just long enough for a couple of quick clicks before he sought safety elsewhere.
