Wood ducks taking a bath

He says “You know women, always washing their hair.”

Drying off.

“All ready for bed?”

“No, wait. I still feel a little dirty.”

Right before I spotted the baby limpkins at Kapok Park, I ran into this wood duck couple. It was getting late and the sun had gone down behind the trees.  I slowly walked up to the edge of the creek and looked down and saw them. I figured they would immediately start swimming the other way but they did not seem bothered by me standing there. I sat down on the grass and watched them for a few minutes. The female stayed busy preening and bathing and then they both hopped up on the rocks and looked like they were settling in for the night.
