I do believe that this is the Lesser Scaup but the female is confusing to me because the white patch at the base of the bill isn't very visible. However, it does appear to be there, just vague. In any event, I think it's a pretty duck so I have decided to post, even though the pose is not too exciting.

Lens: Sigma 50-500

Great pics! These birds are hard to ID - I can usually only tell them apart by what type of water they are on, or where.

This is a really pretty duck and you've done a great job capturing it. I especially like
the first two shots. The smooth water and the lack of anything else
reflecting in the water really makes these guys stand out.

Thanks you two, sometimes just pretty is enough. They were surprisingly tame, floating by me merrilyas I sat watching my Osprey nest.
