In a small unfrozen corner of a rather small backwater lake, a few male Hooded Mergansers were showing off for 1 lone female. Among the hoodies were 5 Great Blue Herons fishing the only open water. Since available space was limited, the hoodies circled the herons while putting on their show. It was an awesome show indeed, although having to shoot from such a distance away, proved to only wet my appetite for more.
