Oh WOW!! Amazing series of images Brian!
We have a few of these ducks at the lake about 1km from our home... along with some others I can't identify which are possibly escaped domestic ducks that have inter breeded.

great series! :)

you got him wearing a water necklace, inside a water bubble, and just having a general all-out blast. and got such great detail on a bright, white, brilliant subject! mine would have looked like that first moon shot you showed us the other day...
