Ok, so these aren't as amazing as all of the Eagle shots being posted, but I hope you enjoy a few shots of some ducks taken at a very ugly algae laden pond.

Great series, but I absolutely totally love that last Woodie shot!

Can't you get just ONE with a big stick in its mouth? LOL, these are really great, I think Wood Ducks rival Parrots for beauty.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

That ugly algae adds some very interesting color to your images. I like these very much

Thank you so much Chris....I'm glad that you appreciate the ugly algae lol. It makes PP challenging to get a good balance on the color due to all of the green of the algae. Thank you for appreciating the photos. :D
