Nature walks to see all the wildlife around us is one of my favorite things. Catching a little action while on the walk pretty much makes my day. This Northern Shoveler drake was set to move to the other part of the pond. I had just got him in focus and snapped when he took off. I love serendipity. :o)

Taken with a Canon SX30IS at San Joaquin Wildlife Refuge in Irvine, CA, with some post work in Photoshop CC.
