Spread Your Wings
Copyright Jeffrey Foltice
As I was walking along a wooded trail near a stream in Ottawa County, Michigan yesterday, I noticed what I believed to be an immature wood duck resting on a log. I was perhaps 30 feet from the bird as we noticed each other. I began photographing the beautiful waterfowl as it sat patiently preening its feathers. Eventually it spread its wings displaying some vibrant coloring and I captured the moment before it went into the water and on its way.
