She's mine Dammit!
LOL....here's the story:
These two mergansers (male and female were paddling down the Elbow happily when from out of nowhere these males (5 or 6 of them) came out and followed the happy couple. They were trying to mob the female here and show off to here with their tails up and parading around. Her mate was was trying to keep them away by circling her and chasing the brutes away but the bachelors were persistent...just like a singles bar on a Saturday night!:laughing:
What a hoot to watch. :)
