Default You wouldn't think it could fly

Seeing them on the ground, or floating on the water, their ability to fly looks doubtful.

Great shots! You wouldn't think they could fly till they unfurl those wings, but with up to a 9-foot wingspan, they get plenty of lift!

Nice shot, Walter. You certainly left your comfort zone for that one.
