Although this could have been sharper, I think it is very humorous and thought I would share a smile. The duck looks to be practicing his ballet moves. This was taken at a nature centre developed in an old gravel pit. This duck was in a pond that we crossed by boardwalk several times. Each time I would snap a few shots except for the last time. He seemed to notice that we had passed him by and started quacking quite noisily to get our attention. Usually this area is quite populated with ducks but on this day, we say only four. PP crop, brighten and minor color adjustment.

Very cute and comical photo. Nice colours in it, and the duck looks so funny.

Hello Cheryl,
Beautiful composition of this duck in position of amusing parade. Good contrast and beautiful colors, but perhaps a lightening of the dark tone would make it possible to better emphasize the subject. Good work.
TFS, cordially,

Nice shot. Great title.
Great composition.
It is humorous but wouldn't be quite so without the title.
