Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Wood Duck Drake” by Gene Putney. Location: Littleton, Colorado.

“On an October afternoon I was photographing this wood duck drake as he was preening,” explains Putney. “He was in the lake where the autumn colors were reflecting a nice color from the Cottonwood trees. He took a brief break from preening providing a nice pose for me to take his portrait.”
