Take on the same day as the one on the  beach. They were diving in front of me.
I fully opened the legs of the tripod so it was flat on the ground. Still had about ten inches from the ground. Next time I'll try my ground pod to loose an extra four inches or so.

This is beautiful, Karl. The chestnut colored head and neck and the red eye are striking. Love the silvery tones in the water.

the low angle is well done and you can use a window mount bean bag, it's easier to move around then a tripod, perfect KARL.

I really like the angle, the exposure, the water, and the colors on the duck - really nice Karl.

One of your best floating duck photos in awhile, Karl.
Large view is just Terrific!
