Common Merganser

These pictures were taken on 16th April, 2008 in Lake Huron near our home. My mentor, Russ Chantler has been harrassing me telling me that if I want a good picture of a bird on the water, I have to get down to their level. These pictures were taken about six inches above water level with me laying on my belly at the waters edge with some blankets over me for camouflage. It wasn't a very comfortable position, but Russ is right, it does make for a much more dramatic picture.
