Early Thursday morning I had nothing better to do so I went spooking around San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf where I found this kindly quacker.

I was captivated by the artwork of this duck was inadvertently creating.

Way to go, duck...   After three or four unsuccessful dives the duck finally succeeded in catching breakfast.

Those are really sharp looking pictures. The clarity is amazing. I think you may get some comments about the bird not being a duck, but I know where your thoughts lie.

Yup, not a duck but the bird does some amazing art work in the water.
I love your ducks in a row on the skyline. Super.

Well, looks like I'd better study up on my birds and ducks... Could it be a Cormorant?

These are some beauties. I too was captivated by those reflections in # 3 and really liked the one of the boat in # 2. Very nice.

Yes, it's a juvenile Double-crested Cormorant. I wasn't goinna say, but you asked :) Love the photo w/the fish.

Oops, Adam beat me to it. Yes Cormorant is the name but duck or Cormorant they are still terrific shots.
