So you don't buy my theory that a hybrid Mallard went to an auto repair place and had a universal joint installed in his neck?

Ok, a serious explanation...

Note that the beak is not blurred...

This Duck was NOT shaking his head, he was shaking his feathers, a different action and NOT what dogs do. A dog shakes off by shaking their body, and their loose skin exagerates this effect and sends the water, usually on the owner (but if you're clever you teach the dog to do it to your best friend)

This duck is not moving it's head at all - simply the skin and feathers. While difficult to see, the actual eye is visible! This is clearer on the original image, than this thumbnail, but the eye is only sleightly blurred, as is the beak, while the skin and feathers are what are moving, not the head.... :lol:

Yes thats what I meant:-)

Holy cow! That is amazing. I've seen waterfowlshake, but never seen what it looks like frozen in time. Nice catch. The Omen duck. Woody
