Beauty Still Lives – Day 87 (Pt. II)

This evening I went in search of Beauty.

And thankfully, found it.


In the soaking wet, drenched head of a gorgeous Red-breasted Merganser drake…


Just coming into his adult feathers…


And diving for squiggling, wriggling fish in the fading harbor light.


Yesindeed, Beauty still LIVES!  ❤ ❤ ❤

It was Ladies’ Day in the Sun – Day 79

I know everyone always gets totally bedazzled when they see the male Red-breasted Mergansers.

And they are, indeed, handsome devils.


But.

The other day at the Chatham Fish Pier, it was all about the LADIES!


Sailing along on the choppy sea, they were coiffed to perfection.


And dive after dive, their feathers held up, beautifully.


I think they appreciated my oooh’s and my aahhhh’s, as they so often feel overshadowed by their handsome male counterparts.

And as I walked away I couldn’t help wondering what kind of gel they used, the hold in all that wind and chop — was simply AMAZING!  😉


You GO girls!
