This entry is all about an experience and has nothing to do with my images.
I am sure everyone reading this post can relate to that.
I have been searching all winter for
The Hooded Merganser Ducks.
I have seen them in New Jersey during past winters and
was hoping to get some images before they left in Spring.
They stayed in the middle of the lake, never coming any closer to the shoreline then this.
I just love these guys and their distinctive look.
The males, black in color, with their fan shaped collapsable crest, here it is down...
here it is up.
They have beautiful white breasts and chestnut colored flanks.
The girls too have the fan shaped crest, with warm tones of brown and cinnamon...
when you spot them you know you are in for a real treat.
And on a p.s....
it was our "maiden voyage" on these for this season.
