I have captured these 'White-Faced Whistling Ducj' at Rondebult Bird Sanctuary.
It was early morning and I like the way they were maintaining perfect line! Light was good enough. Beautiful Duck with white face and black bill. This composition attracted me.

Hello Srikumar,
What a nice photo. I have seen a lot of these ducks, always in a big group.
Excellent sharp focus on the first duck. Beautiful natural colors and an attractive composition.

Hi Srikumar
Swimming ducks are lovely to watch. Your photo is good. The composition is beautiful. A narrower aperture would have brought ducks behind into the focus.

great family capture, greetings Ori

Hi Sri,
Beautiful queue. Focus is excellent on the first duck, but the other birds are blurred, pity for the shallow DoF. The birds at right are a little too closed to the edge of the frame (in my opinion, of course!), otherwise perfect composition-wise as well.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
