Golden reflections - Red-necked Phalarope, Mývatn, Iceland

Shot at lake Mývatn in north Iceland a short while before sunset. The calm water by the edge of the lake combined with the warm light from a low angle made for some beautiful reflections and colour in the water. Red-necked Phalarope in breeding plumage.
Lake Mývatn is known for its abundant wildlife in the summer with many species of ducks and other waterfowl nesting and breeding here.
