Hooded Merganser fishing on Lost Lagoon


Hooded Merganser / Harle couronné/ Lophodytes cucullatus (male): I normally wouldn’t post the same species twice, but I thought it was interesting that this bird was clearly scoping out the water to find fish. Taken on January 13, 2015 at Stanley Park’s Lost Lagoon in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Shot with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 1100, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/500). Not baited, called in or set up.
