Three's a Crowd - Hooded Mergansers by Nambroth Three's a Crowd - Hooded Mergansers by Nambroth
A pair of Hooded Mergansers cruise along in a winter tributary; a second male jealously enters the picture.

This painting was my entry for North Carolina's duck stamp competition this year. It placed 5th! An honor!

SPECIAL THANKS to :iconmanojalpa: for sponsoring me for this competition. Without her I could not have afforded to enter! Thank you!!!
Additional special thanks to Peter Massas, who gave kind permission for me to take inspiration from a few of his photos!
I also used about 34,200 of my photos of eclipse drakes and hens as reference.

Acrylic on board, 16" x 20"
