So pretty!


Camera Critters, have a great weekend.

The little duck is called a Bufflehead and is the smallest diving duck in Canada (and eastern US). The swan is a Trumpeter swan - identifiable by his black bill.

I've seen both these swimmers in other blogs fairly recently, and now I see them together. Sweet!

Thanks for the further explanation on the birds. I do like their names.

That is THE perfect quote for that image. Buffleheads are one of my favorites!

The smaller bird is so cute! A duck, I suppose. Cool composition.

I love this photo. What an unusual looking duck. I'm fond of swans - their transformation is quite special.
