Wood Duck, Aix sponsa, is one of my favourite winter ducks. The male is so gaudy, I wonder if he knows he's an obvious target for raptors and other predators with such an incredible plumage.
This photo was taken at Juanita Bay Park a few years ago. The park holds a special place in my heart for a lot of reasons, among them the ability to get in close to numerous types of wildlife.
