It's not often one gets to take closeups of Wood Ducks when the light's so nice; I was quite grateful these folks cooperated so well!

Very nice indeed. Photos certainly allow one to appreciate the color and structure of a bird in great detail. Well done.

Thanks guys! It was special to have both male and female get up on the fence and lucky to have them in nice light.
