It’s good, if you are human, to leave the superficial and the shallow (and the crowd)… and, instead, go deep. However, if you are a duck, leaving the group and going into the deep (on your own) can get you eaten by a northern pike or a muskellunge.
[The real Duck Dynasty! These are young (immature) wild Mallard Ducks. Fortunately, the one going off on his own (into the deep) quickly came back and joined the group. Almost all domestic ducks are derived from wild Mallard Ducks. Mallards are “dabbling ducks”—they feed in the water by tipping forward and grazing on underwater plants. They almost never dive. (Fortunately, unlike some people, when I shoot ducks I only use a camera!)]
