Ducks at Cumberland Mtn State Park-Camera Critters

I tried my first Camera Critters earlier today, but it was too soon. So here I go again.
These white duck photos were taken in the summer at Cumberland Mountain State Park. This park is on the Cumberland Plateau in middle Tennessee.
This one duck was really struggling to keep his head under water.
His feet were just flying, in the effort to keep his head under the water.
The Canadian Geese were making it look so easy.
But this duck didn't make it look easy at all.
I love the reflections made by his efforts.
Don't know if he caught was he was trying to catch, but if not, it was not for lack of trying.
