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.
To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE
He's a handsome fella but oh my, what a beak. He must be the Jimmy Durante of the waterfowl world!
This male duck is adorable and your picture is perfect with beautiful reflections!
I haven't seen this one before- he definitely wins the prize for largest beak!
He's so handsome!
Beautiful colors, the pic is so clear.
Beautiful colouring in this shoveler and lovely reflections too. Enjoy the weekend. Pam
Flashy is a perfect name for this colorful fella. Nice shot CG.
Have a nice weekend

He's a new one to me, he's a beauty!
great shot of the shoveler!
This really shows the beak being twice as long as a regular duck's beak.
He has such a long beak, maybe he takes water as a mirror to admire himself!
He is quite handsome! Remember I Heart Macro will be open tomorrow evening on my blog if you feel like entering this week:-)
That is a really long beak. I don't recall seeing a duck like this before. Nice shot!
What a beak!
What a beauty, and the reflection makes him twice as handsome!
He must be very efficient at shoveling!
That is quite the beak he has!!!
Nice! I love the ripples in the reflection. Also looks like there is more to be seen across the water.
Beautiful bird.I love the reflections as well.
Hopefully she's at home on the nest waiting for him to come home.
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 :)
Very nice color, and perfect reflection for the day !
Pretty duck, great reflection of him too. Have a great weekend.
I just can't believe how you were able to capture such deep green colors on this duck...beautiful.
Beautiful shot, that guy has great color!
He really IS flashy, isn't he? Quite the looker!
A very handsome bird. Some other folks have wanted to follow me on a photo shoot as well.
I'm glad he cruised near you. Your photo is marvelous.
Great shot...no wonder they are called 'shovelers.'
Some males like to stand out from the crowd :-)
I've never seen a duck with a bill like this. Nice reflection.
