Hooded Merganser female feeding, St Jerome, Canada, by Luc Lemieux

My wife and I were walking along this pond in our Regional Park and checking out the wading birds, which is what observe regularly. To our surprise one of them was a diver; a female Hooded Merganser was feeding among the Mallards who did not seem to care. A pleasant surprise.

    I have for the past 40 years enjoyed landscape photography and wildlife. I enjoyed it even more with the advent of digital cameras plus the fact that I'm now retired. I now have more time to enjoy wildlife and photography.
