Northern Shoveler In Flight – Drake

Post on January 15, 2015 Northern Shoveler Duck BirdsWaterfowl


It’s very hard to show off Northern Shoveler iridescent dark green head while keeping the white breast correctly exposured. But i found a good light angle at my favorite Carrollton duck pond where the ducks would turn inward going around the platform before landing.
