Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Portrait

This is a male hooded merganser, a winter visitor to our area. He's very shy, but I was able to get a few photos from behind a tree. Love his markings!

What an odd looking little creature. You were so lucky to get that shot Penny. You seem to have many birds we never see here.
Yes, I took a lot of photos before I got this one, Ray! He is almost cartoonish - and his wife is an extravagant redhead! One of the things I like about Virginia is that we have these winter visitors.
