Great action shot.
Oh wow that second shot is incredible
I thought that you would like it, cheers Keith.
I recently heard someone refer to this species as "goofy." To me it is downright handsome.
Awesome shots of the Shoveler.. The second one is fantastic! Happy Sunday!
I just can't say enough about your photography - Brilliant!! These are just super, and of course my favorite is the second one with the "stop-action" water drops!!
Oh pretty duck ! What harmony in colors... Purple, ginger, black and white, and golden eye...very beautiful ! For us, in France, he is a "Canard Souchet"Nice Sunday Bob !
Oh yes, the saying goes in France, Canard Souchet. I love that.
oh, you caught such great colors on his head!
Bob, just stopping back to say thanks for linking up to the critter party.. Enjoy your day!
Thanks for allowing me to your 'critter party', I keep on getting it wrong, one day!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Janet. With your site, I am afraid that I can't help you. Try to email blogger!
2 great photos of this bird i have yet to see, well done Bob.peter

Hi Bob..absolutely exquisite and gorgeous! your photos are always spectacular!Victoria
Look at that beautiful royal purple! And that second shot.. a beauty!
Thank you very much Hilary, yes, I managed to do that, lol.
How absolutely beautiful. Sooo much more elegant and colourful than his name.
The second shot is a cracker. I will have to go birding tomorrow. Trouble is there is a mile of sand and they can see me coming.
It's a cracker.
Wow, this is beautiful!!!My compliments Bob.Gr. Tinie
Thanks you Tinie, I try.
Lieber Bob, absolut exqisite Fotos. Besonders das 2. Bild gefälltmir besonders gut.Die Musik ist wieder gut ausgesucht.Einen schönen Sonntagabend wünscht DirIrmi
Bob, dandy shots! I always wonder how they manage to keep their heads out of the water with such a big bill! Then again, they spend a lot of time with their heads in the water!
Oh these are wonderful Bob. I was going to do some water birds today as well and they somehow got misplaced on blogger...sigh! Did something else instead. We have been seeign some Shovlers around here and they are new to me, quite unique looking birds, beautiful plumage~
Cheers Mary. It was a nice weather for the Shoveler, and he posed.
