Finally finding time for an evening visit to the wetlands I was eager to see some of this year's waterfowl babies. After concealing myself on a small hummock with camouflage blind material wrapped around both myself and camera rig I was soon rewarded when a young hooded merganser swam into view.
Even though I was concealed the clicking shutter gave my position away as the duckling passed close by.
Alarmed, the little merganser beat a hasty retreat.
Throwing up a wake much like that of a motor boat!
