Tuesday's ride in the car included a trip to
Lake of the Lilies
I was hoping to see the Male Wood Duck as I knew he had arrived there for winter.
He spent last winter with us but was often difficult to find and always difficult to photograph.
We came around the smaller corner of the lake and I first saw the Female,
she was not with us last winter.
Surrounded by Mallards, it was super difficult to get a picture.
Then I saw him...the Male,
here, showing off his beautiful back.
I wish he had gone for a swim but it was nice to see and photograph all of him.
She is so tiny and so beautiful in her own way.
