    Interesting ducks. Their colors and “beaks” are something else. Beautiful.

  • Thank you, AuntieBarbie! They are not ducks, so no wonder they look different. I found them very fascinating, with their plumage and long bills.

    This is a terrific photo, Eivor. And what beautiful birds! I will go to Belmar this week and try to find them. Great work!

  • Thank you, Eric! Did you find any? I’ve been gone for a while, and have not been back there after I got this capture.

    Love these guys – so elegant with that understated color – just got my first look at them in the wild recently – thrilling. Nicely composed image.

  • Thank you, Ken! They are very fascinating birds to look at, in my opinion. Maybe partly because they are fairly new to me, too.
