More Scaup shots

Interestingly, from the far (eastern) shore, with the sun from the south-east, you could easily pick out a green iridescence on the head of this first-winter drake Scaup. However, when looking back at it from the western shore (looking north-east), the different angle of the reflected light caused the purpel part of the iridescence to show (which you can just about seen in these shots).
