Harlequin Ducks

Just as I finished taking Thursday's photo of the Trial Island lighthouse a small flock of Harlequin Ducks came zooming in and landed on rocks of the foreshore at Clover Point. In flight they are quite dramatic - those little white spots on their heads flashing like headlights. Above is a male and female pair, the male as usual being the more brightly colored.
