Merganser Ducks

One of my favourite ducks is the Common Merganser, Mergus merganser.
I tried to take some photos this morning using my Pentax digital instead of my iPhone camera, as the former camera does a better job of longer range photos, although it is still

not terrific. The females and males are all paired up and the females were doing the neck bobbing gesture that they do during spring mating. So beautiful.
