Here's something you don't see floating around the waters of the United States too often. This is a pair of Red Crested Pochards, common to southern Europe and Central Asia but not Utah. They are part of a large collection of waterfowl from around the world cared for by a private property owner in a small town south of here. The water is a spring fed pond and home to at least 2 dozen varieties of waterfowl including many indigenous to the U.S. The owner invited me to return later in the winter. I'm planning to take a large memory card and burn up lots of room on it.

D800E Nikon 300mm 2.8 heavy overcast skies this morning and shooting into the wrong direction but sun was high enough and buried beneath heavy clouds.
