This duck had just completed a diving session and showed its neck ring well. To prove its diving skills, it had droplets on its head, and a nice muddy bill. :)

Lovely image Axel - and he certainly proves he hit the bottom with that mud on his bill!

Rare to see that ring- nice effect and story with the mud and droplets.
