Common Merganser Starting Take Off At Brigantine

Here are some more images taken many years ago at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division in Oceanville New Jersey. I was surprised to see some Common Merganser Ducks back then, especially in December with snow. But they were fun to photograph, especially the Merganser’s interesting takeoff series. All were taken with a 400mm Canon DO lens.

  1. I love the shot of the Merganser bounding across the surface of the water trying to get airborne. It’s hard to get the timing right for a shot like that and you nailed it, Reed.
