Lesser Scaup Duck

The Lesser Scaup Duck is a small diving duck, that hunts fish.   high-res

The Lesser Scaup is supposedly one of the most common and widespread duck, but they are very shy and avoid people. I'm hoping to eventually get better photos soon.   high-res

Wings and feathers are not really designed for swimming so these ducks often stand up in the water and flap their wings to knock the water off the feathers.   high-res

The Lesser Scaup Duck, very pretty but very shy.
