Harlequins don’t go unnoticed

Straumönd – Harlequin Duck – Histrionicus histrionicus

The Harlequin Duck does not go unnoticed in the males bright maroon, white and blue colors. The males do not give up and try to catch the attention of the females although breeding time is well on its way. The Harlequins  like spring water rivers and the individuals that do not mate gather in flocks.


The photos are taken in Veiðivötn in the South Iceland Interior.
