A wood duck flaps its wings to dry off following a quick dive it took chasing a meal.
I’m not normally too much into taking pictures of water fowl but these guys are the coolest. Their colors are just brilliant and they are very entertaining to watch. They aren’t particularly common in the area I live but there is a little hotspot not far away at Sterne Park, Littleton, Colorado where they are known to hang out.
