Hi Art,

A splendid shot, like the walking in the air style. Claity, colours and dof are spot on.

Hello Art,
really a nice capture of this in-flight duck. The colors are really lively especially the green neck and red legs. Well captured in excellent sharpness. Taking this type of shot is very difficult but you present it so well.
