Common Merganser...

This is a male and female Common Merganser, I photographed them a few weeks ago in a local stream. They were some distance from me as the were shot with a 400 mm lens making it 600 mm with the conversion factor and then cropped in significantly.

Good catch Brad. I have never encountered the Common Mergansers here in Fulton Co.

At first I thought they were double headed mergansers, but then realized it was a reflection. Looks like a classic spring scene.
