I’ve been looking for a good photograph of a Red-Breasted Merganser all winter here on Cape Cod. And then yesterday when I was hiking at Wiley Park I saw something swimming in the kettle pond near the shore. I quickly got my camera out and got ready. I quietly walked down the little trail to the shore and stood behind a tree. As soon as I saw him get closer, I clicked away. And, as soon as he heard the click, he flew away!
But I think I got a pretty good photograph. What do you think?
Phil and I always said that this diving duck was having a “bad hair day!” Cute little guy, don’t you think?
