Artist's Description

I have documented this pure white Australian Wood Duck over the last 6 month’s. He is a very rare duck…I’ve talked to a lot of old-timer’s and Googled all image’s to find that this could be a,
“one-off bird”.
While I’ve been conducting my, ‘David Attenborough’ research, I have noticed that in the 6 month’s of shooting this subject, he has for the whole time been trying to find a mate.
None of his attempt’s in the past have been successful, as the potential mate’s where well aware of the drawback of having a partner with no camouflage. They all-well knew it would be suicidal for the future of any form of family.

Today I went to visit and capture Warrick the white Wood Duck and I was so proud to see that he has finally found a mate, (that’s her in the background)…She’s stunning and smitten with Warrick, as is he with her. At one point he even gave her a kiss while I was watching :-)) And yes… I did capture it, but I prefered this shot to tell his story.

This is not the best image I have of him, but it is my favorite.

In this image I was lucky enough to capture him warding off another male duck trying too cut his grass…Warrick gave him a good beaking and the intruder was forced to flee the scene…

I’m hoping that come Spring, I can capture some of Warrick’s off-spring, and I’m praying that there might just be another one like him :-))
