Wood Duck

Wood Duck

This drake was on alert, with his head and crest extended. These are the most colorful of all North American ducks. This individual was in a pond at the Albuquerque zoo, and was fairly tame in comparison to most Wood Ducks in the wild, allowing fairly close-up photography. The image was processed using the Fractalius filter in Photoshop.
