Ring Necked Duck
The classic, I thought it was one species, get home and check the guide books and find out I was totally wrong. Live and learn.

Also, not great composition - try getting lower to the water and try to get the eye focused.

Species: Aythya collaris (Ring-necked Duck)

GBH With Towers Behind
I get a kick out of wildlife this close to the city towers. A real coup for me would be to get an eagle in front of them.
