Merganser

I have been trying to get some shots of a Red-Breasted Merganser for a while. There have been a number locally on the marine lake but they are a difficult bird to get near and tend to stay out in the centre of this large lake and my efforts were in vain until recently.
I was 'stalking' one bird and trying to move closer each time it dived when it surface right next to me. In fact so close that all I could get was this head shot.
The next step is to try and get some shots of a female, although based on my success rate with the males that may take some time.
I will take this opportunity, as it is the last post of the year, to wish you all a very Happy 2008 :)
