More Ring-necked Duck pics

The top photo of the Ring-neck Duck I photographed at Pueblo Res yesterday shows the details of the bill-a white edging around the base of the bill, white around the nostrils (called nares), the white band then the black tip. The eye is a bright yellowish orange.

In the lower pic the duck had just lifted its bill out of the water. I caught a few drops of water dripping from its bill.
