[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Being a close relative of cormorants - ducks too are equally shy and avoid proximity to humans. While I was trying to pan this bird, flying away from me, it made a sudden mid air correction to the flight plan. [:(] Presumably to escape being shot.

Had it been a video, the duck would have exited the window from the top left corner rather than the expected top right one.

Duck drama over Hyeongsan river.
