Surf Scoter / Macreuse à front blanc / Melanitta perspicillata: The lighting was rather flat, but I was still quite thrilled that this male in breeding plumage got so close to me. Taken from Burrard Dry Dock Pier in the City of North Vancouver, BC, Canada with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (both photos: ISO 1600, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/400).
