Wood Duck (Female) (Aix sponsa)

As you can see the female Wood Duck is not so dramatically colored or patterned as the drake (yesterday's post) but her plumage is a splendid palette of earthy tones with some rich blue and purple and she has a patterning similar to the male on her breast.

Very nice!

Great close-up of a beautiful bird, even capturing drops of water on her. The 180kb resolution is still quite good for a sharp image and detail.

She almost looks like she's hiding a blue morpho butterfly in with her feathers!
