While I was walking down to the shore line at Gasworks Park this duck came up to me hoping to get food I think. I was able to get this closeup before he slowly turned away. It wasn't raining so the waterdrops must have come from his diving. I've always wanted a good close shot of one of these and finally got it. Most of the ducks I tried to approach would always move away except this one.
