I waited quite patiently for this one; he was on his own and I was pretty sure he would take off to find his pals before long, and he did!

Very nice in-flight shot and a beautiful Whistling Dixie Duck.

I've never seen a duck like this before but from your name I would imagine that it must be found in the southeastern United States. I like the painterly feel of the composition with the green water serving as the canvas allowing the duck to stand out quite strongly in the image.
