With spring marching forward we are treated to many beautiful colors such as those of the Wood Duck in breeding plumage. I recently saw this drake in one of the secluded brooks at Horn Pond, Woburn, MA as he started to look back in the direction of the hen he was courting. I photographed this bird using a Canon EOS 7D, 300 mm F/2.8 L IS, and a 1.4x tele-extender under bright overcast skies.
