Australian Wood Duck
Who could have imagined it would be hard to photograph one of these ducks in spring? In past years they have bred in this pond, with ducklings galore, but right now they are infrequent visitors. This morning a pair scudded in, only to decide they did not want to share the pond with an energetic golden retriever and soon departed. Monsieur is pictured. Madame was less co-operative.
