Common Merganser (female and immatures) | Grand Harle | Mergus merganser: These immature mergansers were rather successfully fishing on the ocean as a female adult (presumably their mother) kept a watchful eye on them.

Taken on Ambleside Beach (West Vancouver, BC, Canada), with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.

  • Top: ISO 400 | 300mm | f/5.6 | 1/1000, cropped for composition
  • Middle: ISO 400 | 300mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600, cropped
  • Bottom: ISO 2500 | 300mm | f/8 | 1/4000, cropped
