Female American Wigeon Duck

My wife always says to me, "never leave the house without your camera, as you never know what you might see".....well, I can count too many times when I have failed to heed this great advice, but on this day, with my steady Nikon sidekick at the ready, I was successful in capturing this cool shot of a female American Wigeon Duck taking to the air.

A common and increasingly abundant duck, the American Wigeon breeds in northwestern North America and is found throughout the rest of the continent in migration and in winter.
