Excellent flight image of this beautiful Duck..fine colors and composition. tfs.

Hello Tom,
An amazing in-flight catch,remarkable sharp details,clarity and beautiful colours.Very well exposed and well balanced composition too.

Hi Tom,
Fantastic capture of this most beautiful duck in flight! Gorgeous DOF, marvellous POV, fabulous lighting, superb composition, and excellent natural colors. To shoot a duck in flight is always my dream though tried a couple of times, but unsatisfactory. Congratulations, and thanks. Warm regards!

Whenever one gets enthralled watching the sharp images of birds in flight you share on TrekNature. But ...Do not exaggerate! Tell you took it to pulse and from a boat ...It makes me feel humiliated! Ha Ha Ha! :)
A big hug
of an Argentine friend!
