Lesser Scaup


This good looking guy was floating on the local pond near sunset on a cold winter day. We only see Lesser Scaups a few times each winter so we just sat for awhile soaking up that amazing color in his head feathers.

    1. Hi and thanks for the feedback. It is always amazing that when the light is just right you get to see so much color in what at other times look just like black feathers on this species.

feedback welcome
