Red-breasted Merganser

1000 0


It's mating season and these males are doing their best to mate with this lone female. There were a group of them with only the one female and often times they'd get up on her and sink her.....while we waited patiently in the hopes she'd reappear. Seems a dangerous time for the females being alone with a group of fiesty males.
