Greater Scaups (POTD February 25)

A few images from Wednesday's visit to the George C Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, this time a pair of Greater Scaups.

There were several pairs of Scaups, making this portion of the shoot rather easy, we just had to wait for them to drift by. At first the Scaups were not happy to have us around, but after a few minutes they seemed to get more comfortable allowing me to get some nice up close shots.
