The Hairdo

Dear Friends, this female Common Merganser was found on the open water at Red Wing Mn.  I love her hair, mine kind of resembles this in the morning before the brush tackles the mess, getting it cut tomorrow and a new permanent, til Tomorrow MJ

Hair on Fire

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

Red Shoes
