Well done.

Hi Dan,

Love this shot of the Mallard in flight. The colors are awesome.


Dan nice capture here.

Amazing colours on the head and wing, the shutter speed hasn't quite frozen the action but gives more dynamism to the photo. Good blurred BG.

Perfect capture,TFS and best greetings.

Hi Dan,
Beautiful male mallard in flight. They go fast...:)
On the other hand they do not change direction like gulls for instance.
Well done

Good capture of a mallard in mid flight, Dan.
The colours are beautiful.

Hi Dan

This is a splendid in-flight of this charming mallard!
The details on the head and vody are simly terrific and they contrast so well with the motion-blurr of the wings, giving a superb outcome or this "speeder" :)
The colors and tones are simply outstanding and the rather shallow DOF blurred teh BG nicely.
Spot-on exposure, excellent contrast and a lovely composition!

Bravo and TFS
