This image was taken at Osprey Marsh, which is a local body of water and only a ten minute drive from my home. Usually a pair of Mergansers here for a short time, on their way north to the breeding grounds.

Nice sighting of this pair Paul and the drake looks totally focused on his lady! Perfect choice for the pano presentation.

Nice job in selecting pano for this presentation.  Looks as if the female is having a "hair raising" experience swimming from the male. ;)

Excellent capture of the male and female. The female is leading the move.

Great find, Paul, and neat to see both female and male in one frame.
