    wow, I envy this shot Jane,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,excellent

  • This was the only family I have seen this summer. Usually I see more. They are very shy and don’t like for people to get too close. They were getting ready to swim away.

    Such a joy. We keep scaring a family down the river with our kayaks. Not intentionally. So it’s nice to see what they look like when they aren’t running away! ;-)

  • THank you Ranald. I think they are very people shy and skittish. I saw some other mergansers but when I tried to get close enough to get a decent shot, they disappeared. These were getting ready to disappear. I really enjoy seeing these mergansers, don’t you?

  • I think they are beautiful ducks too. I really like the female’s “woody woodpecker” type hairstyle.
