Merganser Reflection

Female Merganser for:  Bird Photography Weekly


I didn't realize it until after I posted my Merganser momma and chicks that I had a great reflection of the momma. I think it is neat that the momma's crazy do reflects nicely in the water.








Sorry if  it is a repeat photo for some but I thought it would be perfect for Weekend Reflections go and visit  James in Newtown

Thanks to James for hosting Weekend reflections and thanks for visiting my blog.

Mergansers are among my top favourite birds. I remember the first time I saw a group of them - punk hair-dos and bright orange eyes - and I was absolutely bowled over and went rushing off to see what they are.

This is an especially charming photo.
