Birds of the Water....

WOW! I am on a roll with these bird pictures!  This morning when I got up there was a male and female Hooded Merganser couple diving in the little lake!  These are so beautiful in life and of course my pics do not do them justice!  I never saw one in real life until I lived in SC and I still get a thrill to see them.  This is the first time I have ever seen the female so it was a treat.  They dive down to get food and pop right back up, so much fun to see.

This one shows the female with her hood raised!

I love this one of the Hooded Merganser Male and also the background.

Hubby took this one and a couple more below.

In this one the male has his head underwater.
Bill also snapped a Flicker and a Mockingbird

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday to start the week.
"The light of the eyes rejoices the heart and good news refreshes the bones".
 Every day is a delight for what we see through our eyes observing God's wonderful creatures.  The novelty never wears off when we see the beauty and color of a bird, hear its song, see it in flight.
 No blue Mondays here!

And the colors in the photos here, are lovely too... Background colors, reflected in the water. Mmmmm.....
