Ya, she's okay Vito, just in a deep state of "groomation."

Thanks for the input.

Great action shots Norm!

The first one, the Svengali duck, is my favorite. Isn't it obvious that the OOF duck in the FG in that picture is swooning before the preening of the Svengali duck? :-)

Thanks Geoff, the Svengali was the inspiration to go and look for other wing shots in my summer files. Whether or not that duckie at 6 o'clock is actually swooning at anything related to the subject duck isdebatable, since about 15 ducks were present and all seemed to be happily doing their own little thing. However, it is a possibility. I should spend more time watching the ducks and less time planning a shot. :roll:

I like the last shot, the water drops look good in the light. Nice shots all round.
