Colorful Duck


This duck caught my eye. Its colors were very subtle, but interesting and unique. I had to wait for him to float the right way and the sun to hit his feathers to see the green tint.

  4. I wonder what kind of duck he is! I bet it's something only found west of the Rockey Mountains. :)

  8. Looks like you caught the light perfectly. The duck's feathers look almost iridescent. I also like how the water ripples caught the light.
