Colorful Duck


This duck caught my eye. Its colors were very subtle, but interesting and unique. I had to wait for him to float the right way and the sun to hit his feathers to see the green tint.

I wonder what kind of duck he is! I bet it's something only found west of the Rockey Mountains. :)

Great capture. I like its shiny color and also the ripples of the water. This is beautiful!

It's a good thing this duck doesn't live in the Gulf...this one is lucky!

Looks like you caught the light perfectly. The duck's feathers look almost iridescent. I also like how the water ripples caught the light.

he's a cutie! I 'm pretty sure it's a mallard/wood duck crossbreed!
