Female Hooded Mergansers (two photographs)

This is the second in my series of posts on hooded mergansers, this time featuring female mergansers.  I never saw a male fishing but all the females were voracious if not fanatic fishers. However, my observations were certainly not scientific. As you can see from the photograph below they get a kind of crazy look with a fish in their mouths.

  1. Great captures of these moving targets! I love the play of light in the ripples, it creates a varied and interesting background.

    • Thanks. Considering these birds always seemed to be getting away I was lucky to be able to compose.
