Fleeing Duck


I think this is the only shot I got of a duck and it was moving faster than me and my camera could.... I did try for a fair time to get a shot, but my feet were getting pretty damp standing on the edge of the swamp and the birds were not forgetting I was there any time soon... so off I hike for my next adventure

I think it is a wonderful duck myself. The photo isn't quite clear enough to be sure, but it looks like it might be a hen mallard. Were the wing flashes blue to green?

Well, I know for sure that I saw some mergansers and wood ducks there - becuase they are cool looking... but I'd agree that this is likely a mallard, because there were a lot of them there...
and it does have that look to it.

Do you have any wood duck pictures? We don't have many wood ducks in Alberta -- I would love to see one.
