Ring-necked Duck

This duck breeds mostly in the boreal forest belt, where it nests near freshwater ponds in open country and forest. It winters in diverse freshwater situations, including marshes, lakes, and borrow pits.

In flight, both sexes show a weak gray wing stripe (unlike Scaup ot Tufted Duck). The maroon around the males neck can only be seen in optimal conditions.

VOICE Male;in display a rapid series of syncopated piping, sounding like Morse code. Female’ a rapid series of strident, modulated quacks.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
