    Thank you for your comments and votes. These Hooded Mergansers are fairly rare in my area. So when I saw this guys, I stayed around the lake for a long time following it. I must have taken a 100 shots. Sharpness-wise this was not my best but I chose this one for his pose and reflection.

    An unusual bird and the pose he is giving make for an interesting image... excellent timing ...very nice.

    Interesting pose. Consider a tighter crop - in this case, the reflection detracts from the action, IMO.

    Nice shot, a little soft but the fowl was moving. Like the reflection & circular ripples, not much you could do with the brown reflection on right except a different angle.

    Great pose but the motion blur pushes this down in my top 10.

    You caught the goofy, daffy duck quality of this bird very well. Nice shot!

    Lovely capture. The reflections make this image even more interesting. I love the surprised look of the Merganser. In my TT's.
