Reflections on a Hooded Merganser

Hooded Merganser, male at J.N. Ding Darling NWR, Sanibel, FL recently. Hunting for fish, diving, surfacing, such interesting water colors and patterns. What a treat to photograph. Photographing birds allows you to not only appreciate the elements of a photo, but also to become absorbed in the bird's life and behavior and thus gain a new appreciation for that bird in its environment.
