Male Lesser Scaup, Choptank River, Maryland

Here is yet another image from my venture to the Choptank River in Maryland. This photograph doesn't exactly fall in line with the traditional image nature photographers try to capture - bird in profile with distinguishing features clearly visible. However, it's good to diversify a bit and when I first saw this image on the screen I couldn't help but laugh. I love the goofy hair-doo on this Lesser Scaup and the crazed look in his big yellow eyes.
