Picture of the Day: First Flight

Karin Thorella Swedish wildlife photographer, that has dedicated her life to photographing birds insects and the amazing species of our nature. In a photo-shoot of a Golden-eye Duck colony, Thorell captured this momentous photograph of  2 baby common golden-eye ducks leaving the nest and taking to the air for their first ever flight. The expressions on their face are priceless!

The Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula) is a medium-sized sea duck. Adult males ranges from 45–52 cm (18–21 inches) and from 888 to 1400 grams (1.9 to 3.1 lbs), while females range from 40–50 cm (16–20 inches) and from 500 to 1182 grams (1.1 to 2.6 lbs). The species is aptly named for its golden-yellow eye.
