There is no denying that the hooded merganser is not only a fairly elusive bird but also very dramatic. At least the male!
But the common merganser, to me, is just as spectacular! Every time I photograph the male I am amazed by the intensity of the colour of its plumage, and feet.
And not to be outdone, the wood duck is positively mind blowing! I was thrilled to find these two pairs in the same marsh as the hooded mergansers!
These are some of the colours of spring in my special marsh.

So glad to see you’re blogging again! I’ve missed it! Especially now that spring is here- we’ll maybe not here but hopefully in your neck of the woods!
