Aýthya colláris male.
So crisp you've caught the wee feather just in front of him! and the smooth ripples on the water, lovely stuff.

nice one Matt, where do you find the latin names?

@Dimitrios: I use "The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Western North America" published by Audubon, and "Birds of North America; A guide to field identification" published by Golden. Both use illustrations and detailed descriptions of field marks and behavior, which I find much more helpful than photographs.
Nice reflection Matt. It's not everyday I get to see a penguin!

@Dan Meyers: Thanks Dan. This bird went through quite an array of "look what I can do poses". More to come.
The reflection is really nice, good shot!

Another beautiful clear photo with a fabulous refection. For just a minute there I thought I was looking at a penguin too!

@Helen: Thanks Helen. This bird is full of odd contortions, seemingly in a grooming competition with a female mallard just out of frame. I'll post more of him later.
Very nice. The composition, reflection. . .everything works nice here.

@Evie Sears: Thank you. I almost cropped it to a portrait, so your composition comment is very helpful.
Beautiful details and colors! The reflection is wonderful!
