Merganser Fracas.jpg

Francois Lake, B.C.

A most extraordinary thing. About 20 mergansers just swimming along when suddenly they went into a total frenzy. It was so sudden and was over so quickly that I did not have time to set my camera so it came out over exposed. I have lived here for a long time and never seen anything like it. The lake was totally flat, but the spray from their fracas must have been 12 ft in the air.

Wow, I see this once in a while at our local pond, but this is quite a big struggle going on. Great capture !! V

An amazing catch of the frenzy! Your setting makes it even more dramatic! I forget to check my settings even when I do have the time. V

You need to change your description to 'I chose the high key treatment because...' ;) Nicely done.
