Perfect timing, cool action and great color make this our favorite picture this week. Flickr user Joe Povenz snagged this mallard an instant before it hit the water in Kellogg Bird Sanctuary in Augusta, Michigan. Great job! Thanks for sharing this image through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group.
