Hooded Merganser - Photograph

© All Rights Reserved
This is 1 of 3 posts of photographs I took at Sherwood Island State Park close to sunset in Westport, CT this past week.

This male Hooded Merganser was separate from a larger group, then started swimming to catch up with them. Unfortunately all of my other photos came out blurry.

This is my entry for the following:

Lots of lovely things going on in this photo--golden color, reflections, movement in the water. And when I saw this waterbird I thought of costume ball for some reason--one of those fanciful old ones where people wore masks made of bird feathers! :-)

But it sure is one fabulous shot! Such a handsome guy, and you got a great reflection too!

hoodies are very cool looking birds - both drake and hen. :)

I love the golden reflections in the water as much as the duck itself. Delightful.

We've got some "visiting ducks" in our ponds, but I'm not sure what kind they are. This guy is very handsome!

The photo you share is absolutely stunning!!!! Anne, I'm jealous. We are supposed to have this species here in South Texas, but I have yet to spot one.

I do love the little Merganser photos. So peaceful and cute. I guess nature is the one thing we can count on. cheers Nora.
