Redhead Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: One of the more common ducks in March and April in eastern South Dakota, with some that stick around for the summer breeding season. There's no denying that they're just a drop-dead gorgeous bird. The photo below is my favorite of the species, showing the male in all his glory in nice early morning light. From Minnehaha County on April 22nd, 2018.
