Isn't he amazing? Just look at the subtle colour and pattern in those wing feathers!

The details in the wings are very sharp.

Nice shot mate. I thought this was a repost of your image on the 9th the I looked again and realized it was a different bird.

@Darren: Thanks! This is the same bird as the post on the 11th. His mate is under water in this shot, and he has just popped back up. In my high resolution copy, you can still see beads of water on him.
Just another great shot.

Hi, nice shot of this hoodie. I liked your picture of Mt. Hood from a few days back and horsetail falls too. You must be in Portland. Did you find the merganser at the Rhody gardens or behind Reed? Are you an active birder as well as photographer? Funny to see pics from so close to home.
Peace, Jim J

@Jim J: Thanks for the kudos. It's always nice to hear nice things from the locals, as we tend to become a bit immune to the beauty around here. I'm on the SW side, so I don't spend much time around Reed. Rhody gardens are everywhere, so I'm not sure which ones you are referring to. Though I have some wonderful contacts in the birding community, I am primarily a wildlife and nature photographer, and get just as worked up over a good marmot or wolverine shot as one of birds. Thanks again for stopping by, and looking around. Cheers.
@ All: Thanks a million for the specific comments on clarity. This is a least common denomenator shot. The print version is more... just more.
Having enjoyed a spirited bit of debate over Kelvin's fine work, (http://ighopper.aminus3.com/image/2006-12-08.html) it's nice to know image details are making it to your eyes.

Long time no visit sorry, but you've done well with the clarity on this picture. The bird is very clear and quiet. It's not overly loud it's quite simple actually which is why it's good to stare at.

@Colour blind: Hi Kelly- Long time no comment is okay. Long time no visit makes me wonder who is racking up the hit counts on these images. Cheers.
Matt - this one is right on too!
