Lesser Scaup male

Lesser Scaup male 

Usually, I need to look through someone's scope to see any Scaup, they are so far away, so I always enjoy seeing and photographing this species much closer at a little wetland in SW Calgary. I think I'm right in saying this is a Lesser Scaup rather than a Greater Scaup. This handsome male obliged, on April 22nd.
