Hooded Merganser Moves

“For fast-acting relief try slowing down.”

~ Lily Tomlin (1939- ) American comedic actress


The Hooded Merganser is the smallest of the three merganser species common to North America.  In my opinion, this species moves quickly!  They are quite adept at avoiding me and my camera.  I was pleased to catch a shot of this male near the shoreline.

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
