Lesser Scaup

Estero Llano Grande State Park is one of my favorite photography destinations in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. The parks multitude of vast wetlands are host to a large population of both resident and wintering water fowl and shore birds as well as many other bird and wildlife species. I often find myself spending many hours laying in the mud, waiting for something great to swim by.

 

This female Lesser Scaup carried herself so elegantly in the early morning light, wonderful subject.
