[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sight of these ducks -- and, yes, geese, too -- sporting and skittering alongside the crest of the dam this morning tickled my sometimes quirky sense of humor...

I doubt there are surfer inclinations and instincts among the avian crowd, but the fellow near the post surely appears to be in for a ride! Notice all the others are lined up behind, seeming spectators to gaze upon the spectacle, but from a respectful and safe distance.

While I watched, none sailed over the dam, and none took wing at the last second. But quite a few of the birds played it right on the edge :)
