[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Common Goldeneye(Bucephala clangula).
This duck comes to Switzerland in winter and is not seen too often on our lakes. This was the first one I ever saw on the lake of Bienne. It is just about to dive.

Hi Pierre
Lovely capture this duck on the water!
Wonderful colors!

Hi Pierre,

so this is why they call this action "ducking" :)
perfectly sharp image showing the action so well, colors are nice too, I only find it a bit light so the details of the body are less visible. Dispite that it's a very nice shot, showing a good action. TFS!

Best regards,
Andor

Very nice photo of this male Goldeneye in action!

Hello Pierre,
Interesting to see this uncommon duck around there.
You caught it in a good pose just before diving, and with those droplets floating around.
Perhaps underexposing slightly the shot will gain more info in the white plumage.
Thanks a lot for share it,
JM
