Nice series of one of my favorite divers. From a distance they remind me of lLittle floating marsh mellows.:lol:

Thanks, Steve. They are one of my favorites, too. Sometimes you can see a tight group of them feeding cooperatively, all diving at once - you can tell from the disturbance that rises to the surface that they are using their wings collectively underwater to stir up the bottom sediments, exposing small clams and other prey. Smart little birds. :idea:
