I have always thought the Wood Duck was a pretty amazing looking bird. I have walked miles to find one only to have it fly off when I turned the corner and it saw me before I saw it. I do have a few photos of them but all from a distance, a good one has been elusive… until today. I was sitting in a parking lot next to a retention pond behind my favorite Wendy’s and sure enough, there is a Wood Duck! He didn’t stick around long after he noticed me, but long enough to get a few photos.
