Where the Lake meets the sky, birds fly.
If you are not familiar with the species, I can tell you that these Ducks are small and super fast.
Thanks for looking.

One of my nemesis ducks and you captured this drake beautifully!! Can't wait to get myself in front of some of these beauties.
Great looking banking pose with a nice wing position and a beautiful background. Nice head angle also.
I might concider removing the second catchlight to create a clearer looking eye. Well done Karl!!

This one is also spectacular in color. Great eye contact in flight.
