On Golden Pond: Bufflehead at Sunset (Paintography)
I love ducks, and my favorite duck is the diminutive Bufflehead, which runs between 12 – 16 inches long. Their name derives from “buffalo head.” Buffleheads are divers, and their heads and bodies seem to pop out of the water at the end of their dives. This shot is of a male Bufflehead, which has the bright white and black head. They usually come around in the early fall and early spring to rest and eat in preparation for the rest of their migration between the southern US and their breeding grounds in Canada. I captured this shot on a small pond near sunset, when the water turned golden, and used a paintography effect on the photo.
