Arlequin Ducks (en James's Park)

El pato arlequín (Histrionicus histrionicus) es una especie de ave anseriforme de la familia Anatidae, la única del género Histrionicus. Es un pato con un diseño brillante y fragmentado del plumaje que es un sutil camuflaje en las aguas claras y móviles. Cría junto a arroyos y ríos fríos y rápidos, alimentándose de los insectos acuáticos posados sobre rocas y guijarros. Su vuelo es potente y bajo, siguiendo los cursos de agua. Tras la cría emigra al mar, donde bucea en busca de bivalvos, crustáceos, etc.

Ciao Jose Antonio, lovely bird in a wonderful natural ambientation, lovely composition with beautiful flowers, fine details, splendid colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola José Antonio,

Caray!... una imagen para libro de cuento de hadas!... cuantos elementos y que buena luz!... e3l enfoque es genial, hay algo de contra luz, pero eso hace a la imagen visualmente interesante, aunque quizás complica los detalles del plumaje del ave. Pero de cualquier manera, esta foto delita la mirada. Buen trabajo!
Saludos, Jesús

Hola José Antonio,
A fine capture of this park bird that is not a duck but the Red-breasted Goose, that is a rare passage migrant over Western Europe. It nest in the Siberian Tundra.
Thanks and best regards,
Ivan
