Colorful Quacker

Today’s post features an image I captured a few years ago, while kayaking the waters at Amarugia Highlands CA, in west-central Missouri.

While kayaking there, this Mallard drake popped over the trees and flew overhead, giving me a great view of this colorful duck:

Kayaking in Missouri during the spring or fall bird migration can be very fruitful for capturing some nice images!
