A male South American Knob-billed Duck.

The Knob-billed Duck (Sarkidiornis melanotos), or Comb Duck, is an unusual, pan-tropical duck, found in tropical wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar and South Asia. It also occurs in continental South America south to the Paraguay River region in eastern Paraguay, southeaster Brazil and the extreme northeast of Argentina. I got the chance to photograph him at Llanelli wetland.
