This is one of those species of ducks with a very weird shaped bill. This one is a female. The male displays bright contrasting colours which is well marked during breeding plumage.

Shot with Nikon D500 + Nikon 300 mm f/2.8 ( VR-I )

1 / 2000s 

f / 7.1

ISO 500

Excellent pose in this takeoff shot, Biru.The layered background is beautiful. The water drops add interest and assist in telling the story.

Biru, Nice details on the bird with an excellent background. Agree, that is quite a bill!

They really are well equipped with that 'shovel' for a bill! Very nice take off view, Biru.
