Nothing common about "Common"

I felt I could not end today, so-called "Black Friday", on a possibly misinterpreted low note - I sought out the dramatic lighting this morning to make a contrasting statement to the previous couple of entries. Not because I was sad or suffering.

As a contrast to the 7 Trumpeter swans I present 2 "common" Common Mergansers in breeding plumage. I tried different ISO settings because the lighting wasn't the best and I wanted a good depth of field because I
could not depend on the auto-focus to work - flat lighting. Here are a couple of 2 different birds:



They were approx 100m from shore, just beyond the "pack" ice flows. Temp rose to 7C.
