    Ring Necked Duck

    I shot these the other day at Lake Morton when I captured the swans. It is named the Ring Necked Duck but the ring that is it's namesake is hardly ever shown in a photograph. The ring is a chestnut colored ring low on the neck. To me this is one of the most beautiful ducks. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    these birds are so lucky they have a great photographer to show off their beauty at its best! That's a really interesting secondary reflection you got on that first one. This may be a stupid questions but is that a reflection of the reflection?

    #3 is too funny. I think he's telling the paparazzi to get lost.

    What beautiful tones on the female! You've got some great shots here - as usual.

    Nice, Joe. I like #2 the best as it is a nice semi profile and good eye contact as well as a nice reflection.
