This male Wood Duck was actually flapping, not stretching, after a long preening session earlier this year.

Really a particular pose that perfectly highlights the beauty of the plumage.

Great wing position, clarity, and details. I might have either blurred or darkened the vegetation behind the bird so it did not compete with the main subject.

Beautifully timed to catch the maximum wing flap stretch, Warren! I like the inclusion of the natural habitat reeds too.
