Thank you very much! It is remarkable how these ducks have evolved so they can hunt for food underwater. I read one article that said Long-tailed Ducks can dive to depths approaching 200 feet! Amazing!
Thanks Chris! Usually the water is too choppy for this kind of shot, but on Sunday as I was waiting for the duck to return to the surface (so I could get a more 'classic' shot of him) I noticed that he was visible beneath the water. I took a couple of shots, and this one I think gave the best view of the bird.
