Photographer's Note

Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula)

A female Goldeneye with her youngsters. Next time I saw her she had lost two of them. A week after that she was alone. All of her kids where probably taken by predators. But before the poor bird accepted her loss, she searched the area for over a week. Then she gave up and left...

A sad story, but that’s just the way of nature.

Sharpened and cropped. Slightly increase of contrast, and decrease of colour balance (red) has been made.
