Photographer: Kathleen McCrary, Seattle Photo taken: May 29, Meadowbrook Pond Photographer’s description: “Shot with a Canon S95 at Meadowbrook Pond in northeast Seattle.” Katie’s critique: “The theme song from the late-1980s hit cartoon ‘DuckTales’ is now stuck in my head. I’m not complaining. I also have no complaints about this funny and well-executed photo that wins our June contest with the theme ‘On the Water.’ Great job getting close and creating a non-distracting frame. It’s cool to see all the details in the feathers on this duck’s butt.” Share your recent photo from around the Northwest. Submit online at seattletimes.com/submit-photos.
