Roy Mangersnes - Diamond of the north

Many of the wintering ducks of northern Norway are stunningly beautiful, like the King Eider, Stellers' Eider and even the Common Eider. Still I believe my favorite is the Long-tailed Duck. In Norway it is probably the more widespread of the mentioned ducks, but still I find it stunning. The black and white plumage is almost sparkling like a diamond when the bird is sliding across a nice reflective surface on the icy cold waters of Finnmark.
