Male Long-tailed Duck by Woodbine Beach

There was a flock of long-tailed ducks by Woodbine Beach this morning, and this lone male came close enough for me to take a few good shots. They are normally very shy and tend to swim directly away from any human (and their dog), so was surprised to see this one coming my way. Unlike Mallards, have never seen a long-tailed duck looking for a handout of bread, so am guessing that the underwater weeds close to where I was are plentiful.

Here is a selection of the better shots:
