It’s been months since I’ve been out shooting…life and crappy weather have interfered. BUT last weekend I did get out, the sky was blue and while the temps were a bit cold it was wonderful. Captured this pair of Hooded Mergansers in an Irving Park. While you probably can’t appreciate it with no reference point, these guys are very small and I think they are just beautiful. That crest “poofs” up, and changes their appearance totally.
