Red-breasted Merganser

I was just complaining about how difficult it is to photograph waterfowl at the Celery Bog because they rarely come over to the near side, and just four hours later I was there when this pair of Red-breasted Mergansers paddled over and said hello! Get a load of these two, I mean, isn’t that long pointy bill just the best!?! And those plumes? They are rocking those plumes! And red eyes, you know I’m a sucker for bright red eyes! I just can’t get enough of these two, I’m gonna have to start complaining more often!
