I went to feed the ducks with my kids the other day and since I had brought my camera, I thought I’d trying taking a few pictures. Since last time I photographed ducks, I mostly managed to snap mallard ducks, I thought I’d try to focus on wood ducks this time.

Well, it’s great to attract ducks with duck feed, but it doesn’t help if you want to photograph them. Besides getting suddenly surrounded by several dozens of birds, I quickly realized all they wanted was fight for their food, chasing one another back into the pond and landing on top of each other. All of that while moving a lot and letting me snap lots of blurry pictures. Here are the few decent photos I managed to capture of out 15 minutes of feeding frenzy.

The wood duck has to be the most colorful and beautiful duck in North America.

I love this last front angle shot, where you can see the beautiful markings of the wood duck.
