Gorgeous Lady!

by Nina_Stavlund from Ottawa CA on 25 Nov 2016

Female Red-necked phalarope is quite the charter. Unlike most other bird species, the female Red-necked phalarope is the beautiful one, compared to her mate. As soon as she has laid the eggs, she takes off to find another partner, while the current male stays back to incubate, raise and feed the chicks all on his own. Photographed in Iceland.
