> Comments: With lots of sun, I wanted to get some photos of Goldeneye drakes reflecting green or purple. Most that I got were purple, with some mix. What was interesting was watching several drakes trying all the courting moves in the Goldeneye male playbook to impress a single hen. She in turn, sometimes assumed the head straight out, I'm ready, position. Not sure who the frontrunner was in her affections, but it was fun to watch.
