I cropped to this orientation because I preferred the look of the water over the conventional landscape orientation.

Dang Todd.... You've really got a winner here. I love the repeat reflection of the Merganser's hood.

The alternating tones of the narrow ripples and duck's reflection make a wonderful image. Nice work.

I have never even seen a photograph of this bird. What an odd appearance! But very nice capture - especially with those gentle ripples causing the repeated reflections.

Thank you K2 to K50. They are very interesting small ducks. They usually stop over in my area for a few weeks on their migration south and north at a pond pretty close by.
