Hair on Fire

hooded merganser female

Friends, this female hooded merganser is leaving quickly, like her hair is on fire.  They always give me a chuckle, with their feathers all in a tizzy. The perfect reproduction of her head feathers was reflected in the quiet waters of early spring  I love this portrait of her taken before she built a nest and hatched some youngsters. til Tomorrow MJ
