The picture of this female Common Merganser duck on ice was taken at the Bronx Zoo. The picture of this female Common Merganser was taken with the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100-400mm lens and the CANON 580EXII flash.
It is so cool to take a pictuer of a bird standing on the ice. It is easy to see all of the lovely details of this pretty duck.
Hello. I recently had a pair of these birds carved for me. I’m not surprised you needed a 400 mm lens, these birds are impossible to encounter up close. Well done
