p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hooded Merganser Juvenile Male. 4/16/17.


Canon 7d II w/ Canon 500mm f4 II w/ Canon 1/4x III

Notice the yellow eyes and black bill, as well as the white feathers appearing on the cheek.

While waiting for Wood Ducks, this Juvenile/Immature Hooded Merganser Male wandered through. He went about displaying for 3 females.

Fantastic, Mike! Beautiful portraits of this young prince, a first for me to see. So interesting how they transform from this phase to adult characteristics but it's easy to see the links in the chain based on this series. Great light and details to boot!

Thanks for posting.

Mike, just echoing what Geoff stated about how your use of the background accents the great colors of the juvenile. Your shots are tack sharp and are great compositions. Please keep posting great shots like these.
