Week 36 by Judy

Sitting Pretty

Several Hooded Merganser Ducks are spending the winter in a small lake in front of the building where I work. I've been trying to get a good shot of one of the males for several weeks. It's difficult to get close to them without spooking them and to catch them sitting still. I took this early in the morning before he got too busy diving for food. I think they are beautiful birds. Did some cropping and lightened up the bird a little.


  1. Excuse me what happened with the photo of the two mating? Just kidding! No not really but anyway. This is an awesome shot. Love the reflections. This guy really stands out. Every time I saw them they had their butts in the air.

  2. Haha...Becky!
    I am glad to see you captured these ducks, Judy! It's a wonderful photo and they are so beautiful they almost don't seem real!
