Handsome Wood Duck on Lake Harriet

I imagine this duck as the male lead in a 1930's Film Noir. The spotlight is on his belly, as if he just entered the scene. The real story is that I've been photographing ducks for at least ten years on this lake, but I've never spotted a wood duck. I was stunned by his beauty!
