    This mallard was coasting along near the shore of a local lake. The ripples in the water and the light filtering through the leaves and plants on the edge of the lake made for a colorful series of reflections.

    Excellent portrait of this handsome wood duck, Joe.  Love the patterns in the water as the colors coincide so beautifully with those of the duck.

    I have trouble finding a Wood Duck to try and take pictures of, and then they get shy I don't get the shot.  For you he just cruises by and poses perfectly.  I'm jealous.
