Here a male makes almost a splashless dive to look for food near the bottom of a canal.
After a dive, this female beats the water off her wings and back as she tries to dry off. "Use a towel, lady."
This male almost bit off more than he could chew as he tries to swallow a crayfish that does not want to go down. The crayfish lost and the bird had "lobster" for lunch.
A raft of Red-breasted Mergansers congregate to move to their nesting ground.
I hope they have a happy flight and make it back this fall and next spring. My camera will be waiting.
