Photo Of The Day January 20

Hooded Merganser

Today's photo is one of many that I took while hiding in a bird blind yesterday afternoon. This Hooded Merganser was still very cautious, and quickly headed away when it heard the sound of my shutter firing. The light yesterday afternoon was very pleasant, at least for a 10-15 period of my shoot, which helped create excellent shooting conditions. I'll be posting a few more images, of Cormorants and a Common Merganser from that shoot over the next few days.
