While we are all "Social Distancing" in NY we are still allowed to go for a drive. We took the opportunity to go to a local pond to do some duck images.  This is one of my favorites. Coming in for a landing but looks like he is surfing.

Great shot Ed. He looks like he is water-skiing to me.

Great pose, wing detail, and timing, Ed. A fine image of a water-skiing Mallard.

Water skiing!  I guess you cloned out the boat and tow rope, Ed.  :D 

Brilliant action capture!
