I happened to catch this character and its joyful display at the N.E.W. Zoo – about 10 minutes from Green Bay, WI.

This duck wasn’t content to be photographed in a normal duck squat. She wanted to show off one of her more stylish features.
This wasn’t a momentary stretch. I have several frames of her posing like this. She wasn’t warming herself in the sun either, because the skies were overcast. She is standing on the edge of a small waterfall at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay, WI.
