Oh, I like this!  wonderful freeze capture of the water washing over this drake.  It looks like a transparent curtain, almost like its been shrink wrapped in plastic.  Well done!  :)

Very interesting shot- water frozen in time- so well done! It almost looks like it's iced over because the water looks so glassy.

Such a cool behavioral image. Not easy to do, but you captured it well.
