Outstanding Fred. A super composition and the water sprays that he created really add to the appeal of the photo.

Those colors almost look fake! I've never seen a blue like that on a duck. Right place, right time, and good timing.

Hey Greg, the male Ruddy Duck's bill will turn that bright blue when it is breeding season. Around here, the bill stays blue most of the spring and summer. Just saw a couple of them on the lake today, and their bills were still bright blue.

Ah....some animals bills turn blue during breeding season, while......

If they stay blue too long, should they seek medical attention?
