This little fellow was quite a patient little model. My father had been photographing him for about five minutes before I caught up to him. A second male wood duck had been there earlier, but escaped to the pond as my father started to take pictures. After I had gotten my couple of snaps, we found out why this guy had been waiting. His wife came out from underneath a feeding station where we hadn't seen her. I guess she had be freshening up of a date or something. She and the male duck waddled off to the pod together to enjoy the Spring evening ... and get some privacy.
