Shoveler Duck - Nevada


I have taken dozens of photos of shoveler ducks over the past few weeks, but yesterday, this one captured the color of the male duck and the shape of the distinct shoveler bill. Sometimes it takes lots of shots to get one right. (It helps if the wind isn't blowing and that the duck is swimming close and at the proper angle as well.)
