Certainly a different species of such than I have seen. Tennessee eh? A place I have only seen a few times, once in very ultra cold weather....in a tent at below freezing with 3 children and my wife....I did not then no have gotten to see much of it as a natural state....Lovely image though end very much the education. Hoping you had a a fine trip...

Nice shot of the Duck.The thing that caught my eye on this one is the 4 reflections of the bright yellow eye in the water. very cool and nice lighting. Hope all is well with you and Rosie.

Nice shot with reflection Ron, the scaups eye is dramatic.
Good detail, color, DOF, and exposure.
Well done & Happy New Year.

A very nice shot of this handsome bird, nice capture. I used to see these commonly here during migration, but they seem to have diminished since the days of my youth.

You are introducing me to a new duck. He is really beautiful with the dark green head and bright yellow eye. Beautiful colors and details but the scene stealer is the reflection. I love the four yellow eyes shining from the water. I hope you had a great family reunion in Tennessee.

You have had a fine light and you have made good use of it. The duck is shown ingreat detail as the image is sharp and plumage pattern can be well seen.
Thank you for sharing,
