Bufflehead ducks are a really beautiful little duck that are very difficult to hold their whites and still get their head iridescence.  You did a great job getting both and also getting him in such a great position moving towards you while pushing water along the way.  Very well done on a difficult subject.

Dan, excellent head-on approach shot. Love the iridescence and the bow wave. Beautifully done!

Couldn't be sweeter, Dan! Excellent on all counts and pushing his own little bow wave!

A beautiful frontal perspective, very nice attitude of the duck and
I really like the effect created by the thrust of the legs on the water.
