I caught this Northern Shoveler circling a small pond at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. He was looking for just the right spot to make his landing!
He looks very intent on his landing spot, leading with his big "shoverler" bill.
Love the colors, light and clarity, all perfectly captured!
10, 9, 8, 7, 6.........Touch down!!! Great shot. I really love this shot Loyd - it is awesome!
You stopped that smiling mallard in flight perfectly, great shot Loyd.
Great in flight shot of the shoveler.
