Thank you Trev, The mating pair, male and female have only been back on the lake a couple of months. They have been preening and getting rid of down, then oiling their feathers. They are both very tame and you can get within a couple of feet of them. So I was able to get close up and take several photos of them doing all kinds of contortions Smile
