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.

Description
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!
