Drake Bufflehead

Post on January 18, 2015 Bufflehead BirdsWaterfowl


What a tough bird to shoot! The drake Bufflehead is an expose nightmare. How do you control the whiter-than-white head patch and body while showing off that incredible colorful yet dark iridescent rainbow hood? It’s a hard one but when the sun light hits the hood at the right angle, the full spectrum of rainbow hood is possible.
