Day 151: A Merganser Mom and her Chicks (photos)

Shortly after dawn I walked down to the mouth of the Lester River on Lake Superior. After yesterday’s hectic activities for Grandma’s Marathon, Lester River once again was enjoying peace and solitude. I found this Common Merganser and her two chicks having breakfast while swimming through the morning fog.

The Lester River Bridge often gives me the opportunity to shoot photographs of unsuspecting birds from directly above, including this Common Merganser family.
