Beautiful bird. Looks like they have character from that pose.
Love the photo - very nice

Shalu I'm enjoying your mergansers and this couple are so lovely.
First rate.

On a smaller scale, male Superb Fairy Wren with his courtship presentation for his lady.
Apparently this is a very natural thing for them to collect yellow petals.

What a beauty, fotoi!

A bit of a whimsical shot, Shalu. You definitely pushed the button at the right time on this one.

Awesome shot, Matt. Wonderful composition here.

Spectacular shot, Jan!

A-Number-1 shot, Sibil!

You captured the beautiful iridescent colors of this very pretty little bufflehead.

Thank you Mike!

Thank you very much, Melissa!

Thank you very much, Chris! Not sure, I just take what the opportunity presents to me :-P, and quite often I don't realize what I got until I review the captures later.

Love the colorful bufflehead.

Two male hooded mergansers performing courting dance.
