I was immediately drawn to that piercing yellow eye (reflected in the water several times, too).
I bet this one goes down swimmingly on EPZ, Ed Wink

Great image Ed.
Love the iridescent tones that they have in their plumage, when lit by the sunlight.

I've been enjoying all of your little waterfowl. Tufties are one of my favourites.
I hadn't noticed the repeated eye reflection until it was pointed out.
