Good morning, Hugh,
This is a very nicely timed shot with the blurring of the wings giving a sense of movement which is so necessary here. Like this one a lot.
Regards, Ronnie.

Great capture of the white Duck with a fantastic "stretch & wingspread." Looks like he's walking on water. Regards...Peter

Excellent shot. Those wings must be really moving, as your shutter speed was fast enough to freeze the flying water droplets but the wings are wonderfully blurred.
