"Resting Ruddies"

"Resting Ruddies"

These two Ruddy Ducks (Oxyura jamaicensis) were sleeping late in the day at Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Normally animals sleeping don't make for the most fascinating images, but this one, with the golden water and the soft light became compelling for me to photograph. They looked so peaceful.
