If you challenged a professional painter
to paint the most beautiful duck he could imagine, he could not match God's creative colors and design of the male Wood duck.
If there was a little more light this morning, the colors of the drake would be even more vivid. Fortunately, even though it was not very light outside, I was able to get some pictures (thank you Nikon D-90 at 3200 ISO).
Here is some information on the Wood Duck:
"A colorful duck of wooded swamps and streamsides, the Wood Duck is one of only a few North American ducks that nest in trees. Many people consider it to be the most beautiful of all waterfowl".
