Excellent reflex during this collision. Running on water...with a strange face. I like this photo because it reveals many things that cannot be captured by the human eye
He's an Egyptian goose (not sure what the 'trouble maker' is). A well captured moment with some good detail. It's a shame his face is in the shade but this is just my (humble) opinion.
Thanks for sharing.

This is a great shot!
I like the most the face's expression, it's amazing!
I would like to see a close-up of it...whatever were happening, this guy took it very seriously.
Wonderful action picture, the way the wings were captured, and the water drops...full of movement.
An excellent composition also.
Congratulations, thanks for share this great shot and best regards,

He's angry because you called him a duck (in your very first posting).
Don't tell him but biologists had an headache to classify this one as he is in between goose and ducks(based on biologic evidences). They eventually made him a goose.
Nice action shot.

Superb action shot and captured at exactly the right time, great pose, I just love the expression on the Goose's face I can almost hear the screeching, nice details and great colours too.

Nicely timmed capture, the action is good. The individual seems to be ringed.
Nice shot Simon great decisive moment good movement captured and sharp head/body water drops well done I wonder if its a Ruddy shelduck looks tagged probably resident of the park some at Kew also rgds Necip.

Interesante captura en acción Simon con buenos detalles del cuerpo del ave gracias al buen timing.
Los vistosos colores del animal se perciben bien marcados, con apropiada iluminación y foco, aunque no cubre sus alas.
El efecto del agua en movimiento es muy agradable, con atinado encuadre.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo
Interesting capture in action Simon with good details of the body of the bird due to the good timing.
The showy colors of the animal are perceived very marked, with appropriate illumination and focus, although it doesn't cover their wings.
The effect of the water in movement is very pleasant, with accurate framing.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo
