Default My Best Attempt at the Bufflehead ;)

I've been trying to capture this guy for a long time...
They are so small and will fly away so fast that you can't approach them, but this time I got lucky with a superb background and in great lighting:

Excellent BIF shot! They are fast, for sure, though the ones around here aren't very skittish, and can usually be approached to within 30 yards or so before they get nervous...
