Buffleheads in the Sky

I photographed these two ducks in the Central Park reservoir on November 18, 2015. I added another dimension to this set of ordinary images by adding an overlay of clouds making them into digital art.

Little Bufflehead ducks suddenly vanish and resurfaces as they feed. Buffleheads bob around in bays, estuaries, reservoirs, and lakes during winters in North America. Males are a striking black-and white and their heads show iridescent green and purple. Females are gray-brown with a white cheek patch. Buffleheads nest in old woodpecker holes, particularly those made by Northern Flickers, in the forests of northern North America (source All About Birds.org – Bufflehead).
