Nice action capture, Bernie! Great angle to capture all the depths of plumage to this wonderful bird!

Nice shooting Bernie, timing of the shot really shows off the duck. As well I really like the turbulent water.

Love this action shot. These are awesome birds to capture and you have done a great job here. Your efforts and bravery were well rewarded.

On a very cool and blustery day, I braved the elements to take an extended stroll along the waterfront. I was rewarded with a sighting of a bird, not frequently seen around here, but once spotted, you will never forget the plumage of a Red Breasted Merganser. I even got to see him catch and eat his lunch of a fat minnow. Wonderful experience!
