Here is one more image of a wood duck that is probably one of my favorites I got a few weeks ago. There were about 3 wood ducks perched on this tree limb overhanging the pond at the botanic gardens and getting a clean image of one was a small challenge. This one turned out the best despite the not perfect head turn. I cloned out a small cluster of OOF (out of focus) leaves on the lower left corner and worked on the eye some as it suffered from steel eye caused by the flash. Hoping to get out for some duck photography very soon as I have just purchased a pair of chest waders that I am anxious to try out.
