[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Wigeon female flew away like her male counterpart (a mallard), with a few seconds time lag. However, she was more obliging to me without any mid air change of flight plan

I am thankful to - Tom for the correct identification of the bird - that too on April 1st/2012! Thanks a lot!

Hi Subhayan
it's a female Wigeon, not a Mallard
good compo

Hello Subhayan

Excellent in-flight shot of this duck with a
fine POV and very good space in-front to fly,
i love that little blur of the wings just
to show fast flight movement, TFS

Bonjour Subhayan,
A fine flying bird-picture. I like your chosen horizontal framing and the subtle colors. May be with somme PP work you could have accentuated a little bit the contrast.
Kind regards
