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!
La strana coppia !!! Strana ma molto bella, come lo è la tua foto 🙂
Ha! Sono la strana coppia! 😀
Impressive sort of friend he is…Great photo capturing the daily marsh activity.
Thanks a lot Charlie, glad you liked this moment in the marsh.
Oh there’s cuteness all right!
So much action and great low light!
Glad you enjoyed the photo!
Great pic..that hair oops familiar….haha
She does sport a rather crazy hair do for sure!
Such a lovely little face she has! The little turtle reminds me of the baby that you photographed, making its way to the sea, last New Year, Phil. I wonder where it is now?
She is a cutie in her own way. 🙂
We think about that baby turtle all the time and because it was so determined we feel it likely arrived safely in the gulf stream.
That is a great capture! I can see clearly of her face, hair,… Merry Christmas to you! Hope you’ll have enjoyable holidays.
Thanks I’m happy you liked this photo and hope you have a Merry Christmas as well Amy!
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! 🙂
She really knows how to rock that ‘do’ doesn’t she?! 😀
Love Mrs. Merganser’s do!
Oh yea, she’s got it goin’ on!
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!
Thanks very much for your visit here Ammi and best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas!
Sweet pair of friends, Phil. 🙂
A turtle friend 🙂 This is so sweet!
Very beautiful duck-and good taste in friends as well. 😉
Merganser duck ….. I would love to meet it in person. Nice shot, Phil!
