Surf Scoter - Shoreline Lake


Surf Scoter

Surf Scoter (female), Shoreline Lake in Mountain View, California. Surf Scoters can frequently be found in the winter time patrolling the waters of Shoreline Lake. This image was taken several minutes after the sun had set, with the dusk light to the east illuminating the water. A fill flash was used to bring out the duck's color, and I luckily happened to capture a drip of water coming off of the duck's pronounced bill.
