Male Common Goldeneye on Stanley Park’s Lost Lagoon

COGO_male_01-Lost_Lagoon-2015_01_19 Common Goldeneye / Garrot à œil d’or / Bucephala clangula: Not to sound like a broken record, but the lighting was challenging! Still, in the photo above, you can clearly see the green tinge to the dark head. And in the photo below, he clearly had quite an itch, right behind his ear! Taken with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up. Top: ISO 800, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/800 Bottom: ISO 800, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/800 COGO_male_02-Lost_Lagoon-2015_01_19
