Ring-necked Duck on Lost Lagoon in Vancouver’s Stanley Park

RNDU_male-Lost_Lagoon-2015_01_19

Ring-necked Duck / Fuligule à collier / Aythya collaris: Although the lighting was challenging on this day (as I’ve pointed out in a couple of previous posts), I like this photo because you clearly see the maroon “ring” around the male’s neck (it is often not very visible). Taken with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 800, 270mm, f/5.6, 1/1000). Not baited, called in or set up.
