Bufflehead's have been one of my favorite ducks and a must find for me since I learned of their existence. This little guy was a lifer for me! When I first noticed him, it was quite overcast and I was thinking I may be able to get a few to prove I saw one, but none showing the great iridescence they are known for. As I was leaving, the wind changed directions and sun came out! This little guy stayed quite a ways from the shore, and kept taking naps, but I managed to get a few while the conditions were right. All images were taken with a 7D, 500 f/4 with 1.4x extender, and handheld from bank.
Hope you all had a great Christmas
