The ducks had stayed long enough, and a distraction from neighors signaled to them that it was probably time to head on back to the pond. Two different images of the same duck were combined in PS. I applied a slight gaussian blur to the second to blend in with the background. Taken with a 70-300 mm lens 1/50s at f/5.6.
