[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After being a lurker for the past 3 days, I decided to join TN. The quality of pictures here are amazing and I believe the members will be of great help in developing my new passion of wildlife photography.

Just started (2 months) into wildlife photography and here's my first post to the forum.

A male mallard in flight. Taken from Marie Curtis Park in Toronto.

great sharpness and details, the catch-light at the eye

Good flight shot of the mallard and with 1/1000 th of a second, you have done extremely well to get freeze the movement of the wings
