Going through old images. This is the only Gadwall Drake that I've ever seen in this plumage. Gorgeous Feathers.

Really wonderful feathers with iridescences that almost look like mother of pearl.

Trust you to go for a different angle, Richard!  :)   A good view of the feather colours on this little gadwall.  As Mary said, they do look like mother of pearl.
