I photographed this female Merganser at about 1:00 am on a June morning. It was in a small alpine lake about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The male Merganser was nearby, and they seemed very relaxed with me watching them. It looked like a beautiful place for a Merganser couple to call home.

The high latitudes are an amazing place for watching wildlife. It’s nice having the sun up almost 20 hours a day at that time of year. Because the sun angle is quite low for most of the day, the soft sunlight has a nice warm color.
