A male [Common] Pochard (Aythya ferina) carrying out its daily preening.  FAB.

  1. Good morning Frank!:) The sun really shows of the wonderful colour and detail in the feathers ,especially draws attention to the eye, with which he seemed to be concentrating on his foot at that moment. Beautiful capture!:)
