I Dont Give A DUCK!

F/5.6, 1/1600, ISO 400.

Common Merganser ( Female )

Tom and Bob are talking:

Tom: “I managed to lose my rifle when I was in the army.”

Bob: “And…”

Tom: “I had to pay $1000 to cover the loss. I’m starting to understand why a Navy captain always goes down with his ship. ”

Interesting Fact: Often when one bird dives in a large group, the others follow the leader and disappear. They can stay under for up to 2 minutes, but they normally dive for less than 30 seconds. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Common_Merganser/lifehistory )

    • Yes that’s for sure, maybe that’s where the rock band haircut ideas come from different ducks. Hehehe. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  1. You just did give a duck! 😉
    and she’s a real beauty – great photo man!

    Seems like the shot was taken on quite a low angle – were you in a boat??

    Your jokes are getting better! ( or i’m getting more accustomed to the humour – i’m not sure which?) 🙂

    • Thank you very much, I am really glad to see that you enjoyed my work. I acutely took it from a car passing by a local lake with a telescoping lens. I think you are getting accustomed to the jokes. Hehehe. Thank you again and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. Beautiful Merganser !! I’ve never seen one, but, through your lens I see the beauty of the varied size and shape of the gray feathers in contrast to the tan head quill-like feathers. Thank you for sharing. Jan
