Cruisin'/Weekend Reflections

Male northern shoveler amidst reflections

This flashy fella was out slowly surveying the territory last week. He came quite close to the lookout I was standing on,  then slowly paddled away. His mate was nowhere in sight so I'm thinking she may have been sitting on some eggs.

He's a handsome fella but oh my, what a beak. He must be the Jimmy Durante of the waterfowl world!

This really shows the beak being twice as long as a regular duck's beak.

Malyss said...

He has such a long beak, maybe he takes water as a mirror to admire himself!

Laura said...

He is quite handsome! Remember I Heart Macro will be open tomorrow evening on my blog if you feel like entering this week:-)

Nice! I love the ripples in the reflection. Also looks like there is more to be seen across the water.

Hopefully she's at home on the nest waiting for him to come home.

Giga said...

On nie jest sam, bo ma drugą kaczkę w wodzie, blisko siebie :)
He is not alone, because he has a second duck in the water, close to each other :)
