Wow beautiful image with superb detail and coloursAlexa
Thanks so much Alexa..The early morning light really helped with the details and this bird was pretty cooperative or maybe just distracted :-)

beautifully captured Gary, “what a pose”!
Thanks so much Hiroko. The pose made the shot and the icing on th cake was that the bird kept its eyes open when normally they close them when preening like this..lucky!!
Wonderful capture, Gary! What an absolutely marvellous shot of this beauty!
Many thanks Mike. We got spoiled last Fall when three drakes came in at Andrew Hayden Park in the West of Ottawa. My experience with this species before that was limited to seeing them way off in the distance or taking off at first sight . These guys settled right in and many of us got great shots of this very beautiful species.
Thanks Jess :-}
Great capture Gary with excellent detail and colour.
Thanks very much Jenny!
