Hooded Merganser

I photographed this Drake Hooded Merganser during a trip to Kellogg Bird Sanctuary located in Michigan. I was photographing this guy swimming around a small pond feeding with other waterfowl when he suddenly decided to do a wing flap for me, the only one that he did while I was there photographing him. The green water colors is a reflection of some of the foliage surrounding the pond.

1dmkIV, manual, 1/200sec @ f/5.6, ISO 400, 700mm (500mm f/4 + 1.4x)
