Not on Speaking Terms

Two Harlequin Ducks in the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary appear to not be on speaking terms as they refuse to look at one another.  We got really lucky as we approached them in the zodiac that they stayed in place on this beautiful spot, and didn’t scatter the moment we stated to approach.

 

The beautiful deep greens really make the the colours of these male Harlequins really stand out, and I love the angle of the stump that they are relaxing on.
