Mrs. Merganser and Friend

This past week I was surprised to see this solitary female merganser duck picking around among the duckweed in the swamp. I usually see mergansers in pairs or small groups, rarely alone. But it turns out that Mrs. Merganser was not alone…she had a turtle friend sitting on a log out there also enjoying the late morning sun!

  1. Love the green and orange accents which coordinate with the turtle (such a cute little guy) and Mrs. Merganser. She is a silly looking thing, with that tuft on her head! 🙂

  2. Hi Phil & Alyce! Hope both of you are doing fine. Wanted to wish you a wonderful festive season and a very merry christmas! Mum & Dad have passed their regards too!
