Picture of the Day - "Beep, Beep - Speedboat Coming Through" - June 5, 2016

Not much happening down by the river this morning. At the Eagle's Nest, only the little ones were home and they were hunkered down from the cool, damp fog. Stopped by the beaver pond and we were greeted by Mama Mallard and the little ones. They were coming right up to us and we manged to get some really good closeups . The best happened a bit later as they swam around to the other side of the pond and were working their way back. Mama and about half of the little ones were back near us when I saw this guy and a couple others racing back across the pond. I think they were trying to set a water speed record as you can see from the wake and the fact he is half out of the water, hydroplaning.
