Tufted Duck

2 ducks at the lake today, a female Scaup on the left and a male Tufted Duck on the right. The Tufted Duck doesn't normally look like that with a long neck, it must have been stretching. I think they are so cute with their little tufts and bright eyes that stand out against the black feathers. They're usually at the lake every winter and are close to shore since most of the lake is frozen over with just a little bit of open water, so getting pictures of them is pretty easy.
I still had to use my zoom lens though.
