Mute swan and hooded mergansers
Last Friday was another day with temperatures below freezing on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Likely the swan will stay here for the summer but the hooded mergansers (male on the left, female on the right) are just passing through on their way to northern Ontario.
I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.
It looks like they're following the swan around. It's good to see the waterfowl out swimming again.
Life in harmony there! Beautiful shot!
Beautiful image.Spring is so wonderful,in that birds pass through which we would not see at other times.
Love the little mergansers against that big swan. :)
Beauty in rippling waters.
Many different type of ducks are always in the pastures with the Trumpeter Swan too.
I love those standing swans photos a few entries ago.
So, the mergansers aren't imprinting on the swan?
You are so knowledgeable -- it is a learning experience to drop by each day. Beautiful catch!
I love how you seem to find so many swans!
I saw my first hooded mergansers on the weekend and I was so excited!( I might have to start one of those life lists)
What a great thing to see. I love watching birds.
They do what they always did. There's something comfortable in knowing it..
Love the composition of this shot!
Great shot, EG....at first glance I thought that could not be cignets!..and it wasn't...but sure thought so at first.
They are swimming in close formation...
I can't wait for the weather to get warm enough for me to join the swans and ducks...
I don't know why they don't freeze solid right in their tracks!
