Duck, Duck… another Duck.

These are some shots of Long-Tailed Ducks.  Some might not recognize them by this name.  It’s relatively new, they used to be called the Old Squaw Duck.  Apparently, a horribly offensive term for a Native American woman stirred up a bit of controversy.  So oddly enough they changed it to a name that actually describes the physical look of the animal.  Go figure.  Anyway I saw this male on the same pond a few weeks in a row and eventually had time to grab my camera.  These come from a few different days of shooting, one was foggy, the other sunny.  I like the feeling both give.
