Spot on, Doc...such a classy looking bird, with a fantastic courtship display.
The Goldeneye, was taken on a little Lochan, near Lochinver, NW Highlands.
Here's an amusing encounter between some of my garden wildlife. The fox cub didn't notice the deer at first but then got curious.
The deer, which had been watching the cub, decided it was time to stand up and the cub realised it was much bigger than it looked.
Slightly sheepish looking cub (pardon the metaphor).
This was taken a few hours later that day. The fawn was probably why the deer was a bit nervous of the fox cub.
Wonderful pictures, steephill...and what a fabulous encounter, I'm very envious to say the least
