Ruddy Moods

There’s usually a flotilla of Ruddy Ducks (Oxyura jamaicensis) on Prospect Park Lake this time of year. This female was hanging out solo on Sylvan Water in Green-Wood for at least five days when I took these pictures.

    The view with the gold reflection is spectacular! This begs to be painted a la Klimt.

    Good pictures of the Ruddy Duck. This is a fun site, Matthew. When I visit the kids in Brooklyn maybe we could hire you to take us on a wide-awake-life stroll?
