    Female Ring-necked Duck

    I captured these in late March at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The duck was enjoying a bath, splashing water in all directions. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Joe,
    A very nice (and sharp) series of photos.
    There is no doubt that the duck is enjoying its bath (*).
    Congratulations,
    Antonio.

    (*) Here in Brazil, when a child is enjoying the bath and splashing water in every direction, we say that it looks like a happy duck in water. Now, I understand better the reason for this expression.

    Nicely done female Joe. I imagine the birds are moving north by now in your area, aren't they?

    Hello Antonio, thank you for viewing and commenting. Your description of a child splashing water the phrase to describe it brought a smile to my face and a vision of a child in a bath. Thanks again.

    Hello Bud, thank you for viewing and commenting. Yes, most of the migratory birds have left for their summer homes. I look forward to them returning next fall but we still have our resident birds, butterflies and dragonflies.

    Nice images Joe; I prefer number 1. I've only recently started wildlife and bird photography, but from what few birds I've photographed, this is one of my favorite species. I have a few shots I need to process. The female is a beauty, but the male is something else to see!
