Most of the harlequins and long tailed ducks were already at see, especially the males. At one place i found four males inland at myvatn tho, still in their breeding suits :)

One of the spectacular beauties of iceland, usually found near fast flowing rivers

Thanks for keeping your promise, Jeroen - and what a lovely chap he is too! Nice, muted lighting and a complementary smooth background really make that striking colour scheme stand out. Now about that gyrfalcon .. ;)
Thanks again, Nigel.

Hi Jeroen,
Ik ben al weer terug. Op weg naar de Pantanal kreeg ik in Sao Paolo te horen dat mijn schoonmoeder was overleden, dus ben ik direct omgekeerd en terug gevlogen. Ontzettend jammer.
Maar wat een schitterende foto! De mooiste van deze soort die ik ooit gezien heb.
