Tufted duck

The Tufted Duck (Aythya fuligula) is a medium-sized diving duck.

It's danish name translates to "troll duck" because of the clear, yellow eyes which can be seen clearly in very little light when the dark body is invisible.

I love this composition and details. The water on the duck's back, the eyes, everything is so sharp! You catched them at a good moment! I also like their names in danish : troll duck, funny! TFS,

Hi Daan, This is a very busy duck mum you have shown here today. Good low POV which helps a lot. The brown colour is not as pretty as some duck, but is true to nature. Well done. Murray.

Hi Dan,
Excellent group shot! Perfectly framed, a good moment with them bunched tightly together. Beautiful detail and colours, excellent exposure. So this is what Trolls really look like :-)
