Black Duck

Boundary Waters, Minnesota

Edition of 500

I came upon a pair of American Black Ducks while canoeing in the Boundary Waters one evening.  This one swam into the glow of the setting sun creating wonderful contrasts between it's dark colors, the warm glow on the water, and the shadows in the ripples.  The blurred ripples convey a great sense of movement to this duck in the evening light.
