Reflecting on Waterfowl

- as seen by -

During each of my visits to the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo, I make it a point to stop at the ponds to check out the waterfowl. While I enjoy the goldeneyes, mergansers, and ruddy ducks, I’m always eager to see the wood ducks.

Wood ducks are among my favorite photo subjects. The hen is pretty although not as colorful as the drake. The male’s spectacular plumage in wild color combinations make it seem almost artificial.

This wood duck drake, standing on some ice along the stream, struck me as a rather comical pose.
