Default Hooded Merganser

Taken at one of the local parks with the E-3 and 200mm lens. Someone else commented that the duck had a snobbish look. He looks like he is looking down has nose at someone in disapproval. I think that they may be right.

LOL. You may be right, Harj. He must have been looking at some of the BBC America shows. Thanks for looking and commenting.

LOL I agree with Harj about the expression.

Very nice shot Steven, you were very lucky to find this friendly Hooded, ussually they are very shy and tent to be far from any human visitor.

Thank you very much for looking and your comments, guys. Always appreciated.

We get quite a lot of Hooded Mergansers down here in the wintertime. And those in the parks are generally more use to seeing people walking around the ponds, which makes for more photo opportunities.
