A Not-so-Common Merganser

Common Merganser

This cutie was hugging the shore today looking for something, or maybe just drying off in the sun. No sign of the drake.

No, I really didn’t get that close — it’s a 300mm zoom. Eventually she headed out of range. Again the compression of perspective & shallow depth of field (well, it’s distortion really) from the long lens really makes me happy:
