This morning was another Merganser day with this time around, a Juvenile Common Merganser and a female Hooded with 3 babies... I following this young one for a long time hoping it will do the torpedo style which the Red-Breasted had not done. The Common Merganser is quite common during the summer here. There is a park I usually go for them when there is nothing else because I have been shooting these guys for years. Well, this little girl sure made me laugh. First I have no clue if she went for the fish or she was swimming too close to it but the only thing I hear is the great splash and water everywhere I could not make it at first and was hoping it was not a huge snapping turtle trying to catch her... So I keep on shooting and saw something flying which I thought was a big fish but never expected to see it ... The Mergenser's reaction was so funny with her big eyes and trying to get out of there as fast as possible... anyhow one needed to be there to see but I think we see her reaction in this and other photos... Hope you will enjoy this.

When they come out right in front of you and you can't focus until you step back... ah well! :)

This time of the year you can find parents feeding their babies, you find those cute ducklings (pics coming soon), but you will rarely see a bird in migration. In the past few weeks I have been seeing a Lesser Scaup which I finally got the shots I wanted and this incredible beauty (I love that species especially the male), the Red-breasted Merganser.... after doing the Scaup I had a walk around and came back may be an hour later to discover this lost soul. In all the time I was there, it never stopped feeding, never took a break and could never have a great shot of her long and beautiful dry head feathers... not complaining here, just saying. That day I did 4 different places and trails. I saw 3 different Merganser species in 3 different places. It was an awesome day. Needless to say I have many shots I love of this girl and will post later.

While photographing another subject, I saw something moving in the rocks but it disappeared on me not having time to see what it was. So I did not move and waited hoping it will stick its head out and so it did... a cute baby groundhog. I was not expecting this at all....
