Male Tufted Duck
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|“Male Tufted Duck” is the name of this photo taken in St. John’s. They are fairly rare around this area but stay all winter as far as I know.|
The Tufted Duck has a large range, estimated globally at 10,000,000 square kilometers. Native to Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America, this bird prefers wetland or marine ecosystems, though it can live in ponds. The global population of this bird is estimated at 2,700,000 to 4,100,000 individuals and does not show signs of decline.
They are one of the most common diving ducks. They are quite tame and have adapted well to man-made lakes, even in busy city parks.

A nice photo of a duck I tried to photograph last week, but they were to far away. I made a workshop to bring a bit more detail in the duck by highlights and shadows. I hope you don't mind. Beautiful eye, good POV and composition.
It's nice to see such a nice duck still on open water in Canada. Very pretty duck with it's big yellow eye and nice contrasting feathers. Well done. I like the wave action on the water as well.
congratulations for the beautiful pictures, excellent natural colors and great sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
