Common Mergansers Seem To Be Everywhere

I don't usually photograph common mergansers, especially the drakes, because it is so hard to get a good exposure.  Their head and necks are dark iridescent green while their bodies are white...



I am not seeing wood ducks yet, so I am posting some  mergansers...



Hens are easier to photograph due to their more subdued coloration...




I don't know if the drake in the next image is yawning or telling me to stop taking photos...


Thanks for visiting, be well and come back soon.
