Long-tailed Duck

Irondequoit Bay Outlet

Also called an Oldsquaw, these ducks are very (camera) shy,
fast moving and hard to expose properly due to their high contrast plummage.
I have deleted many images of these birds, in an attempt to get a good shot.

other sizes: small medium original auto

Seems like he spotted you and made a swim for it ;-) It's so tough to get close to them. Nice image!
