    The ever handsome woody! Nice eye level view of him, nice detail on the bill, very easy to blow the highlights there

    Hi Mike, thank you for viewing and commenting. I captured this image the day I met you at Lake Morton. I was sitting on the bench while you went to photograph the White Pelican, this Wood Duck climbed out of the water and onto the top of the concrete wall. Stay safe...
