[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Female Tufted Duck are common in Ireland. Trying to catch them between dives can be difficult but does have the added benefit of bringing water droplets into the shot. This photo was taken in early evening and there is no artifial enhancements to the photo of the duck or the water. What you see is what it was.

The female can sometimes be mistaken for a scaup (Aythya marila) but is smaller, less broad and less likerly to be seen in an inland pond.
