Goldeneye Duck on winter pond in Kansas

This female Goldeneye duck with its piercing glance glides on the boundary between the reflection of tan wild grasses along the pond's shoreline and blue winter sky from above. It almost seems abstract. To preserve context with its surroundings, I decided not to crop and enlarge the photo any more.
