Mama Merganser

 

female mergansers and baby

Here's another family scene. I really like this one. It's a female merganser and a whole passel of babies, swimming on the Tahquamenon River. I especially like that I caught one of the babies riding on mama's back. And mama's crest is just raised so high that it looks like a really moussed punk haircut!

This is a fun picture. I really like seeing water birds swimming around with their little ones.
