Description

Luckily, I arrived at the lake with my camera gear out and ready. I immediately saw this Hooded Merganser drake that had just surfaced from his dive in search of food with a crayfish. At first he had trouble controlling the crayfish as it fought back, and because of that it allowed me time to capture a few good action images. The Hooded Merganser got it controlled, won the battle, and then swam further away to enjoy his meal.
