Rare Wood Duck Found

Each trip into the out of doors is a search for that something new, rare and special. Sometimes I get lucky and get a special photograph!



This week I was rewarded with being able to get this photo of the rare wood duck, Magnus quercus capitis.

Do you have to sit and wait for long to get such shots or are they serendipitous?

Tabor said...

Hillary...too punny. Friko I just sprinkled a few donut crumbs on the water and it came.

You have a good eye and a great sense of humor. :) Right up Hilary's alley, so to speak, so I know she had no trouble naming this one a POTW. Congratulations!
