We only see Wood Ducks once or twice each winter and never in the same location. One late afternoon a few weeks ago on a whim we turned into a park that crosses Clear Creek where we have never walked before. Upon arriving at the creek the first Ducks we spotted were this pair of wood ducks. Unfortunately they spotted us as well and moved quickly out of camera range but not before we got a few shots of them enjoying the nice golden light of a winters sunset. After a few shots they flew off into the sunset leaving us with just a glimpse at these beautiful birds. Yet sometimes just a glimpse is good enough.
