Last one on the raft is a puddle-duck!

Yesterday evening I went down to the dock to enjoy the sunset, and I heard some avian conversation behind me.  I turned to find that a gathering of mergansers was settling in for the evening on the diving platform of our neighbors to the east.  It was far enough away that I didn’t alarm them by rapidly contorting around and getting into shooting position fast enough to be ready to catch the straggler.

  1. Brought a smile to my face…

  2. Sometimes water birds get the best spots. Oh, to be lying on a gently bobbing platform fresh from a swim and enjoying the sun. I envy those birds!
