Merganser Lunch (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

Mergansers are diving ducks and this one caught a crustacean. Like most birds that hunt in the water the preparation of the prey for eating takes some time and involves a lot of dunking etc. These ducks given the lighting and colour of their feathers are hard to shoot, as it is far too easy to get backlit shots. I use spot metering and it works most of the time to get me a head start in post processing.
