Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-breasted Merganser

(Mergus serrator)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: I am told, "You am right where you are supposed to be, no matter where you are." Encounters like this one assure me how true this is. As my partner Lori and I crossed the bridge into Chincoteague NWR we noticed this bird feeding in the salt water channel right off the side of the road. We circled the round-a-bout and doubled back. She dropped me off on the bridge's walkway, but I couldn't see this diving duck anywhere. Suddenly just in front of me popped up this beautiful male Merganser. Fortunately, I had sufficient light to capture this creature sharply even as it swam up current. I had chosen a slightly higher f-stop to allow more of the picture to be in focus. When photographing around water the auto-focus is often confused by the high contrast in surface reflections, so I compensate when the light allows me to.
