This past Remembrance Day turned out to be one I will never forget. My first ever up close look at a Long Tailed Duck.

Check out my latest blog post to see more images of this beautiful duck and the other species I photographed that day.

Of all the diving ducks on the island the Ring-neck duck is probably the most scarce with only 3 being reported on the whole Avalon, 1 male and 2 females.
On Saturday I was hoping to see the male at Quidi Vidi lake since he had been reported there for a little while now. Only once before have I had the chance to photograph the male so I was excited to see him amongst the divers when I arrived.
I had hoped to come away with the classic field guide shot showing all his beautiful markings. I had grabbed a few keepers and I was just about to clue up my morning when I noticed him coming my way. He obviously wasn’t coming for me but I did notice he was coming for the female that was right next to me. I heard his distinct courting call and then he did his display. Hoping (actually praying) he would do it again I framed him up and let fire. I was very pleased when I looked at the back of my camera.

A few weeks ago while photographing waterfowl at Quidi Vidi Lake I noticed that shortly after sunrise for a brief few moments a section of magical light reflected on the lake. This light resulted from the sun hitting the windows of a distant house then reflecting into the water. I have made multiple attempts to capture some of the divers passing through this magical light. I have yet to photography what I feel is the perfect image in this situation but I did capture this male Tufted Duck which I felt made for a unique and interesting image. If you look closely you can still see the water frozen to its head and chest from the bone chilling -21 degree wind chill from that morning.
