Solitary Hooded Merganser ~ This male Hooded Merganser was nicely reflected in the pond in a local park. He had his "hood" fully raised as he came up from each dive for food. He lowered it just before diving. Each time he went under, I moved as quickly as possible to get nearer to his location, hoping for a closer shot.
Mr. & Mrs. Merganser ~ This pair of Hooded Mergansers was actively swimming and diving in the pond in a local park.
Look At Me! ~ This male Hooded Merganser was flapping his wings as if showing off to his mate, who, sad to say, looked very unimpressed!
