I visited Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim, California, last fall. There was a small stream running through the park and some Wood Ducks were on the water. This female was in dark shadows but I decided to try a photo anyway. I had to reduce my camera’s shutter speed to 1/13th of a second. Fortunately, the camera was on a tripod and the duck wasn’t moving, so the photo is quite sharp. I really like the way the iridescent colors of her back feathers stand out.
