  1. What an awesome series! I’m envious that you got the chance to “shoot” these spectacular birds! Kudos, Linda!

    Awesome images Linda of a beautiful bird:)

  3. Fantastic shots, Linda. You must have enjoyed getting these photos.

  4. Fabulous series of images! That is a bird I can’t get enough of when they are here for the winter. They are so elegant.

  5. I love these! Love your header up there too!

    Outstanding hoodie shots – one of my all time favorite birds. Love the natty dressed males!

    Fabulous Linda! Just fabulous photos of the male displaying. That female sure got a lot of attention.

  9. Stunning photos of one of my favorite birds!!

  10. Fantastic captures! I think Hooded Mergansers are so very beautiful. Terrific behavioral shots! I always have a difficult time photographing these stunning ducks as they are so very shy. I can see you had no problem at all. Outstanding!

    • Thanks Julie. These boys have their party clothes on for sure. I’m fortunate in that the Rio Grande Nature Center has built large blinds on two different ponds, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to get nearly so close. Happy you like the photos! :)

  11. Superb shots Linda, congrats!

  12. Merganzers! One of my favorite winter water birds. Great shots, Linda. I saw you wave as you flew over. :-)

  13. Thanks Bob! Happy you like the photos. Those are very elegant ducks. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Big Bend!
