Default hooded merganser

i'd heard there was a pair of hooded mergansers hanging out at a nearby retention pond, so i headed down there this afternoon to see if they were there... they were, just kinda chillin'. they swam back and forth, looking for all the world like ducks in a shooting gallery, before they finally settled down at one end of the pond for a snooze. the sun was already behind a hill, which made for shady light and high ISO, but at least the whites didn't blow as badly as they would have in brighter light!

These guys always remind me of Bevis & Butthead! Great captures, Rocky.
