Default Hooded Merganser

Hooded Merganser from trip to NC. I was a bit far from the little guy and he was swimming away from me. Any suggestions on what to do with the background.

Nice environment shot Bob. Don't think there's a lot you can do with such a busy background without making it look false. One suggestion is straighten the image as he seems to be swimming uphill.

Thanks Kevin hadn't noticed that. I'm sure it looks like that because of the angle I was shooting up the canal (cough, cough)

Hope this looks better

Nice shots. Some backgrounds are just tough.
