Nice to see the colorful male with a female along-she sure is eclipsed by his finery. ;). I don't think I've ever seen a Shoveler with so much beautiful color and variety of plumage. Lovely shot!

Lovely detail of his beautiful colours. For some reason I wish her wing tip wasn't sticking up above his back - but that's just me!

The male is wonderful, but I’m not sure about the female. A bit of a distraction for me.

Excellent flight shot, however, I wish the female would not have been in the background.
