[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Folks , today I have this image of two Drake Goldeneye ducks , I believe that these would be common goldeneye (Bucephala clangula). I mostly see these smaller ducks around this time of year during spring migration , their breading area is an area called taiga , which is between the arctic tundra , and temperate forest. here in High river we are near to the southern edge of the breeding range so most of the golden eyses seen this time of year are likely to cary on a bit further north to breed , though family groups can and will be found in this area too. I have a photo of one such group found last year I will place in the workshop with a bit more note...

thanks for having a look

Hello Art,
really a pleasant capture on the blue sky as its forever beauty background. The shot of the duck is so pretty with lively colours and sharpness. The overall view is so exciting and the simplicity gives the effect.
Excellent job!
