Nice shot. At first, I thought it was a hunting shot because of the one duck stretched out.

Thanks Jack.
I thought the same thing.:lol:
Happy New Year.

My goodness; what a unique, amazing shot, Shalu. From the reflection on the water, it almost looks like your camera was partially submerged...very cool looking.

Thank you very much for your compliments as always, Mike!

Southern Emu Wren - this one showing the full length of the filamentous tail - made up of just six 'feathers'. These birds grow to 19cm - just under 8 inches in length, with the tail accounting for two thirds of that.
