A speed camera in the Swiss canton of Bern caught an unusual offender recently: a very fast, low-flying duck.

The bird was doing 52 kilometres per hour in a 30-km/h zone in Oberwangen bei Bern, an official image of the moment shows.

Amused police posted the photo on Facebook asking readers where they should send the fine.

Normally, driving at this speed would involve a fine; police would also be notified given the 5-km/h tolerance limit, the Berner Zeitung noted.

In this case, however the culprit will get away without even a warning.
