Common Merganser and Others…


This duck looks like a speck below the enormous mountains behind it.


I watched these Common Mergansers for a few minutes, diving and searching for food while they headed down the lake.

  1. Ah Montana, one of these days.

    People keep asking me if I won a million dollars where would I live.

    I tell them Montana even though I have never been there.

    Some people think Montana is all flat and boring.

    They have never been to the far western portion of Montana.

    Population of 1 million and 100K of that is in Missoula County. There may be a very good reason for that.

    I do not know what county this is in. Though, I guess I should look up Glacier National Park.

    Missoula is surround by mountains. What better way to wake up each day.

    These are a great set of pictures – I dont get to see mountains (or ducks!) like that any more.

    I wonder if the duck know that his surrounding is magnificent. He sure is lucky to be in this place. Such a great shot!
