Longtailed ducks

Like most birds, the name is decided based on the dude.

I was thinking about the picture of the Longtailed Duck taking flight, and realized it didn’t really do a good job of depicting why they have that name. Because of that, I thought I would share a shot that shows the member of the family that has the long tail, as seen here. This helps showcase why the name was given.

And this will help showcase just how many there are in the harbour right now:

I took this with my 150-600mm lens, shooting at 1/2000 and f7.1, with an ISO of 800.
