Flying posture of Common Mergansers

I went out early this morning looking for CommonMergansers and found them in their usual place. And they did their usual thing.They flew away. When downloading these pictures I was very taken with their posture! Look at how straight they hold their bodies while in the air. Beautiful! perfectly designed!

I think they must have studied aerodynamics :-) Very sleek and arrow like.
