Love the Hoodies!They are such beautiful ducks! The ones we have around here are so skittish and hard to get close to. Nice work!

Aww, what a sweet couple! The males piercing yellow eyes are stunning.

you did a great job on these! not only are they usually so shy, getting both in the shot with decent lighting so as to not blow out the stark male or blank out the dark female. LOVE the water in these shots (even the floating feather in the 2nd shot).

Nice shots of the Hoodies. We had several Red-breasted Mergansers that hunted cooperatively along the margins of our back yard lake. They moved in a wedge that herded the fish to the shoreline.

Great shots, those males are really well marked.

Well, now my hoodie shots are downright mortifying.
Thanks a ton, Brian. Sheesh

They are such cute little things! A rare sighting around here. I'll have to live vicariously through your great pics. Love the reflections.

I tried yesterday to catch good shots of a pair yesterday but they would swim away every time I got near them! Beautiful shots!
