It may not be a runner duck; but it clearly aspires to be one.

That’s like something out of a cartoon… I kind of suspect that little duck is running ON the water as it fades away down the creek!

Ha! I was expecting one of those tender videos where the rescue animal pauses to wistfully look back at his rescuer before slowly walking away. Made this even better somehow.

I have no idea if “tuned to be crisp” is a thing US gear heads say, but it’s the kind of perfectly evocative turn of phrase that leads me to think “I have no idea what you’re saying but I get exactly what you mean” when my gear head friends start talking about gear head stuff.

Pretty sure that’s no duck. Looks like a type of cormorant.

Kudos to that cameraman or woman or whatever they prefer called. Just, good job on keeping pace AND getting crisp videos of something that looks like a miniature hydroplane at full speed.

Like greased shit through a goose, the duck is loose, off he went, with one hell of a vamoose!

That’s me trying to escape the stupid of the Trump presidency.

Holy shit did he take off!

“Crisp” is the new “sick.”

It’s funny, but looks like the video was sped up (look at the water ripples).
