Northern Shoveler Head on Reflection

I was photographing ducks at a local Nature Area when this female Shoveler started swimming right at me. The eyes seemed to be looking right at me. I was setup for subjects a little further away. Shot with a 400mm w/ 1.4x teleconverter. There were three Shovelers and they regrouped and did a close swimby right in front of me. I really like their large bills and their colorful markings.
