Finally got some time to go out to the park with the 7DII this last weekend, and encountered a couple of visitors that I don't usually see up there; regardless of their name :p All taken with the 7DII + 100-400, handheld

Common Mergansers:

Very nice shots, Eric. The eye in that last shot grabs your attention! But "common"? Shucks, don't recall ever seeing one!:lol:

Great shots! We have these all winter, but given the topography it is hard to get as close as you obviously were.

Excellent shots, Eric, they are fun to watch when they come across some fish.

Thank you, All!

@Rog @Jeremy: Right?! I've always wondered at the name for these guys...I think it's just Audubon $&@!ing with us :D

@Jeff: LOL; I've had the silly thing since day 1, but haven't had time to actually shoot much. Definitely a nice little update :)

@pknight: Yeah, pretty rare to get them that close and calm; I was shocked and happy!
