I thought I'd gotten wood ducks out of my system with my trip to Sterne Park last week. But every day since my visit I've seen more wonderful shots of them on the Front Range Wildlife Photographers Facebook group. Knowing that fall colors wouldn't be reflecting off the water for much longer, I decided to head over one more time.
Peter Pereira. We all had a great time watching the assembled fowl compete for crab apples.
South Platte Park, which is where I'd planned to go next anyway. We headed over together and sure enough he spotted this one in the Northern Wildlife Area. We respected his privacy and stayed a good distance away so as not to disturb him. He didn't really seem all that bothered by us, in any event.
Now am I done shooting wood ducks for the season? I suppose only time will tell. :)
