Tranquil waters at sunset hosting a pair of small, elegant long-tailed ducks. A duck of cold northern waters and most abundant in the high Arctic region. They are one of the deepest diving ducks and can dive as deep as 60m to forage. In North America it used to be called 'oldsquaw', though this name has fallen out of favour under the influence of negative connotations of the word 'squaw' in English usage. Fearing that its name would be offensive to some Native American tribes, it officially became known as long-tailed duck.
