Red Crested Diving Duck by Fons van Swaal

Red Crested Diving Duck

This group of ducks is so named because its members feed mainly by diving, although in fact the Netta species are reluctant to dive, and feed more like dabbling ducks.

These are gregarious ducks, mainly found on fresh water or on estuaries, though the Greater Scaup becomes marine during the northern winter. They are strong fliers; their broad, blunt-tipped wings require faster wing-beats than those of many ducks and they take off with some difficulty. Northern species tend to be migratory; southern species do not migrate though the Hardhead travels long distances on an irregular basis in response to rainfall. Diving ducks do not walk as well on land as the dabbling ducks; their legs tend to be placed further back on their bodies to help propel them when underwater.

Great 3D look


Deryck, 21.03.2009 at 7:31h

I have never seen these ducks before, but your documentary is very interesting. I am trying to imagine what they look like walking, waddling....
Great shot Fons. The dark background makes the detail stand out beautifully

Ein sehr farbenfrohes Wassertier ist Dir hier vor die Linse geraten.
Du hast es sehr gut erwischt. Die Farben sind wirklich sehr schön
und kommen so leuchtend herüber. Die Umwelt ist ausgeblendet
und von daher kann das Auge sich gut auf dieses Tierchen kon-
zentrieren. Feine Aufnahme.
