Terry Ryder is [user]Quackers[/user], only enters shots of rubber duckies. You have to admire that kind of specialization!

He husband Gerry, is [user]Nuzzer[/user], he was visiting Houston and I took him to my favorite duck photo hunting ground. Seemed appropriate to go with Quakers.

pretty severe crop, but it held up OK. I had other decent shots of the mother and her little brood, but I like the straight on, low angle of this one.

RAW adjustments of exposure, highlights, and sharpness.
