A new year and another new thread!

I've been having a great deal of trouble with Photobucket on my laptop lately (it's basically freezing my screen) so I'm now posting with my iPhone. I seem to be losing a bit of image quality in the process but it's better than nothing! ;)

Found some harlequin ducks in great light at Peggy's Cove a few weeks ago! Imo, the most attractive diving duck off of our coast...

The iPhone Photobucket app is working fine for me. Photobucket itself is an absolute mess on my laptop though. I gave up fighting with it.

Went back for another crack at them in the sun. Check out the feather detail and the chocolate-brown eyes...
