Black Scoter female preening. Soon to be headed northward.

I like this shot - Lightroom saved it. Massive crop and noise reduction used.

Cute.  The sooner, the better!  Fortunately they come to their senses! ;)

My usual suggestion so that we're not just looking at pretty pictures we could see virtually anywhere, please add interesting/useful information such as the lens used etc. ;)  I think most of us are here to learn how we might improve.

Great shots everyone.

Beautiful and educating seeing what's around other parts of the world.  Keep it up everyone and thanks for the added information.

I think Dolina deserves an award in that and other categories for posts such as the following!! :) ;) :D ;D
