Bird Pic Of The Week

Hooded Merganser

(Lophodytes cucullatus)

Where: Melbourne, FL • Viera Wetlands

Notes: This is another of my favorites from the past year. It is the featured photo for October in the 2013 iPhotoBirds Calendar. This shot was taken just as the sun approached the horizon at the end of that clear day. The fading light was kind to the contrasting white this "Hoodie's" crest, yet still ambient enough to show the feathering detail in the dark plumage areas as well. The calmness of this little diver, plus the use of a tripod in the low lighting conditions, contributed to the sharpness of this image. When photographing waterfowl, I prefer a very low vantage point, keeping it just high enough to capture a bit of reflection too. This posting is in anticipation of the approaching fall and the start of the ensuing migration with all the wonder of new birds that it brings.
