This is one of the next frames of landing. Buffleheads and Common Goldeneyes do this kind of slowing down most of the time. Other Ducks, mostly Long-tailed Ducks land on their belly. Fun to watch.

Another great shot, putting on the brakes! Really fun to see-I wish I could witness, but you've made it as close as possible.
