|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
One of the few ducks that stay in the area if there is open water.
A medium sized duck. The female is chocolate brown and the male has a greenish head and white on it's sides. It's eyes are golden yellow.
The Goldeneye can be found through most of North America.

Light, color, texture and action, your photo has them all. I have never had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous duck, you have done it in a wonderful way. The reflection is definitely a bonus, but the overall atmosphere of lighting and shadows really captured my attention.
I love the way your obviously fast shutter has frozen the water droplets in mid air, while the splashes give us a definite indication of the ducks momentum. Beautiful shot!!

Beautiful scene.Nice colour and light.and this Duck added a different eye-catching natural ambiance here.
Thanks for sharing,
Welcome to TN after nearly one year's hiatus, Janice!
I'm personally very pleased to see old members returning to this depleted site.
Impressive picture of this lovely Duck taking off from water. The movement has been well captured and the bird is in sharp focus in the flying posture.
The blue and white of the surroundings complements the image.
