Surf Scoter in Vancouver Harbour


Surf Scoter (male) | Macreuse à front blanc | Melanitta perspicillata: This bird was part of a small flock of scoters close to the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre Seaplane Terminal. Although I wish the angle and light had been better, I’m still happy these individuals came close to me.

Taken February 25, 2016 in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR, cropped. Not baited, called in or set up.

  • Top: ISO 1400 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/500
  • Bottom: ISO 1600 | 480mm | f/5.6 | 1/250
