"Shake Your Booty!"


This is a Red Breasted Merganser drake. I took this photo last week from the pier in front of our house on Totman Cove. The drake had seaweed wrapped around him and it looks like he was trying to shake it off. Or maybe that was a deliberate fashion thing with him, since there were also Merganser hens present that he was trying to impress. Could he have been a Merganser in drag? He wasn't the only drake in town. Perhaps he was hoping for a shot on 'What Not To Wear.' I'm sure he would have gone with the original British version of the show, which is much better than the American one.
"Shake, shake, shake!"

  1. I have to know what kind of gel the kingfisher used...or was it all "blowing in the wind!"

  2. I think the drake and the kingfisher go to the same hair(feather) stylist!
