Hi Tom
very good fly of duck
well done.

Def looks like a sundowner shot for sure...Seems like late pm or VERY early am is best time to get these in flight. Otherwise they sit in the sun all day and hardly move:-) fine action shot Tom

Beautiful in-flight capture Tom,
Love the color on the out stretched wings. The detail is very sharp also. Do you know what kind of duck this is?

hello Tom

excellent in-flight shot of this duck,
fine framing, the duck is superbly placed on the image,
the expression on his eye and pose of his wing
it is giving the speed effect on the image, TFS
