Red-breasted Merganser

Male Red-breasted Merganser fishing in the Barnegat Inlet - Barnegat Lighthouse State Park, New Jersey

View On Black

I had crawled out on the jetty, and was hiding between rocks while photographing these guys. I had been there about an hour, and made some pretty good captures when some folks walked over right next to me. As expected, the bird I was photographing swam off, and I figured it was time to move on when another male flew in and landed 50 feet from us. My new friends pointed and talked while I made these captures, and the Merganger seemed oblivious to it all.
