         These Common Eiders Somateria mollissima were photographed during a visit to Shetland where these large and robust sea ducks are common. The drakes are very striking indeed and they can scarcely be overlooked but in contrast the ducks are cryptically coloured so that they draw as little attention as possible to themselves when they are nesting.
