An "Eskimoroll without a Kayak" or "Duck upside down". *g*

I just love to watch the ducks on the water, especially
when they are cleaning themselves.
This one really seemed to have fun as it did some cool
moves above and under water.

Thanks & have a great sunday! :-)

Hi Thor,
Oh my gosh , there you go making me laugh again.:o)
What a funny shot.:o) And I'm with you , watching wild life is the best! I love watching the ducks and geese in the lake in front of my house, But for sure need a longer lens to get up close and personal like this shot ! TFS

Helo Thorsten,

They are funny indeed! This is an original capture and you chose a good shutter speed :) Thanks,

Hi Thorsten,

curious image, very interesting moment capture!



Thank you again for the smile! What a great capture! TFS

OK, so what is next: an underwater picture? Is your camera waterproof? Great action shot, they are indeed funny to watch. Here we get some diving ducks during migration which can swim great distances under water. Try to catch them: you never know where they re-surface, and by the time you focus, they dove again....

Hi Thor,

This is amazing - I've never seen a duck actually roll over the the water. Great original shot.

Kind regards,

Hallo Thorsten!
Nicht erschrecken, ich bin's!
Du hast ja den Schalk im Nacken ... ;-) ... die Ente wahrscheinlich auch.
Tolles und technisch perfektes Foto. Glückwunsch dazu!
Grüße und einen trockenen Sonntag aus dem Siegerland!

Hi Thorsten!

What a beautiful and funny shot. Watching wild life is very interesting but sometimes
you need lots of patience as well. Well done! ;o)
