Greater Scaup (Female)
It's nice to see the female after having seen the male. She isn't blessed with the green head and yellow eye but still is quite attractive. An excellent shot with wonderful details of her face and plumage. The water looks delicious - love the color, the circles and the reflection.

Nice POV, the details are simply so awesome. It's so awesome to see the water drops on her body. Fabulous focus it is. You got the framing very well too.
Thank you for sharing it,

Another really nice shot, I like this one better, you were closer, so better detail. A very handsome bird, not showy, but still an attractive species.

What would the male be without the female..and so it is written....ducks are quite monogamous you know...Very good, clear crisp shot Ron!
