Goosander

I do like the Goosander. It can be a real pain to get close too. More often than not it's on the other side of the lake or pool, close to the undergrowth and desperately trying to get away from you. I was fortunate the other day to get close (ish) to this female while out in Manchester. It gave some good views before, once again, moving too far away from my lens.

  5. Oh, they are hard to get close to, aren't they? They take one quick look at me and quickly paddle away. I think you did well before this one got to far. :)
