Merganser Food Fight Action (9 photos)
8

Again taken last Saturday on a cold but fine morning for photos. Its not everyday a merganser surfaces near you with a big crayfish, I'd suggest even less often when you're ready with a long lens to get the shot. All shot with the Sigma 500mm F4.5 and Sigma 1.4x TC

Big catch

Now the fighting starts

Now a Male tries to steal the food.

She managed to hold on and now she can have breakfast.

My friends hat got in the way of this photo so i lost a lot of contrast and had to rescue it, increasing the black, contrast and exposure brought with it a lot of destructive noise, however for a rescue it think i did ok.
