They certainly are cool little birds. They look like fuzz balls with wings.

I love the bird, the calm waters, and the really great reflections that you got! Nice job on this, these can sometimes be really hard to shoot too since they can be so skittish. :)

Yeah, I can't resist taking a shot whenever I have the chance, even though I've got a bunch already.
