Default Waterfowl touching down

This is a collection of different waterfowl just as they hit the water as they land.

Steve,

Nice touchdown shots! I love the frontal touchdown shot of #4 the best. The 49ers could use touchdowns like these in the Super Bowl.

Thanks to you both for your comments.
I agree the 49'res needed more touchdowns.. They also needed to play all four quarters not just the last two. Oh well, there is always next year.

Here is one more landing shot. I couldn't find it earlier.

The last one is really nice too! Looks the the 49ers defensive back is a tad late to prevent a TD.
