Synchro dabbling.

Synchronized Dabbling is a big deal at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary.  For years, Northern Pintails have owned this sport,

but it looks as though 2010/2011 may mark the end of their reign, as Northern Shovelers are hard at work, perfecting their three-man (including a rookie!) routine.

As usual, some random Mallard horns himself into the shot.  Mallards, by the way, have never won.

Scenes such as this always put a smile on my face. Nicely captured.

But if any of the pintails gets kneecapped, I'd finger a mallard, right off.

Nothing funnier than 'duck butt!'
