Wood Duck

Duck Week Continues!

What do you get when you cross a duck with a computer?

A quackintosh.

Interesting Fact: Wood Ducks pair up in January, and most birds arriving at the breeding grounds in the spring are already paired. The Wood Duck is the only North American duck that regularly produces two broods in one year. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Wood_Duck/lifehistory )

  1. So beautiful! I always enjoy your wildlife photography.

  2. I don’t know if this is true or not, or if it’s even for this particular type, but aren’t the males the pretty vibrant colors and the females are dull, monochromatic?

    • Yeah this is true. That is a male on that photo the female is not as colorful. Thank you very much for stopping by. πŸ™‚

  3. Amazing click, coming from someone who is not into animals much!
    BTW, isn’t ISO of 1600 too large?? too much noise I mean! I have been told to keep it under 320 always1

    • Thank you very much, and yes ISO is very big but that’s because it was very cloudy day and sun was down when I came across that duck. Wood duck was swimming away so I decided to put the ISO higher and get the shot. Some photographer ones told me it’s better to put iso up and get the shot then get it blurry. Thank you for taking a interest. πŸ™‚

  4. Boooooooo! That was for the puns. Don’t quit your day job; I’d hate to miss out on all of these terrific photos.

    You should head to the Adirondacks in New York for some loons. They’re such loony characters, diving underwater when they should be flying over it!

    • Thank you very much, and I know some of the jokes are extremely lame but it’s hard to find good jokes now a days. I am have to take a trip to that place in NY it looks interesting. Thank you for sharing this location with me I appreciate. πŸ™‚

  5. Very beautiful troughopenlens..!! The Duck and colors are beautiful..! Great shot.! 🍁

    • Yes it is. I love watching the nature, you would be surprised what you can see if you stay still for a little bit. Thank you for your feedback. πŸ™‚
