Bufflehead Duck - Landing

I am always amazed by the variety of colors and other characteristics of birds. Each species has evolved a certain set of genes that express themselves in an infinite variety. Some ducks have pink feet, others have orange, green or black feet. This male bufflehead was using his pink feet to slow down for landing on the fishing pond at Veteran's Memorial Park, in Boulder City, Nevada. I really like the way the Boulder City's Parks and Recreation Department planned and developed this pond. Canon 40D, 500mm lens
