Common Merganser female: Riding the Current by 

Mergus merganser: More often than not these diving ducks float downstream over the deep river channel diving with the current to come up behind little fish. Then at some point they will fly back upstream to start over. I love this spot on the Deschutes River because the opposing canyon wall casts dark rich tones and hues on the water.

As a HS teacher I conducted an annual ornithology class where I took students on field trips to places like the Lower Klamath NWR. Upon retirement I took up bird photography after reading Arthur Morris’s book The Art of Bird Photography. Currently, I have been strongly influenced by the work of landscape and HDR photographers like Robert Rodriguez Jr. and Trey Ratcliff.
