Common Merganser

I look for these fish eating ducks, Common Mergansers, each morning that I go to the river.

They are very wary and with the slightest noise that I make they are gone. Yesterday morning however, I was there first and sat along the shore and watched and waited as two floated downriver towards me. The complementary colours of the orange head and the blue water aided in creating intense colour and brightness in the photo, highlighting the richness of this merganser's colouring.
