Minimalist wood duck
I recently downloaded ebird, an app used to record sightings of birds. I saw that wood ducks were recently spotted at Lake Fairfax and decided to check it out. Their is a boardwalk that leads out to a pier where one can rent paddleboats. I didn't realize the wood ducks would be hanging out near the peer and I spooked them. They flew out to the middle of the lake and slowly swam to the opposite shoreline. I took some photos anyways (awesome looking birds) hoping to land a decent shot. Had to work in a pretty significant crop to get some detail and I realize the birds weren't tack sharp...also need to work on my technique.
Anyways, here is my attempt at a minimalist wood duck. I already know the photo itself isn't very sharp (I'm going back there to try again) but thought I would share anyways.
