About the only water that wasn't frozen solid was this irrigation canal. I caught this little male Bufflehead swimming toward me. The Sun was really doing a number on his feathers. It looks like a paint by numbers painting gone wrong.:G

I really like this photo. I never have seen one of them before but I would like to see one.

They are the cutest little diving ducks. About the size of a pigeon and just full of attitude.

Beautiful shots Steve, well caught and captured !!! Those colours against the white are amazing.

very nicely done, Steve... excellent captures! the second one is superb. we have buffles up here, but i have yet to catch one close enough in the right light.even if they come close enough - which is rare - the little stinkers always go bottoms up just as i'm about to snap the shutter... :angry:

Thanks everyone for your nice comments.
Rocky, I want you to know that my experience with Buffleheads has, up to now, been exactly the same as yours. I betI have deleted at least 50 pics of buffle butts, or empty rings of water were they had just been...:G
