Love these...the fall displays of the drakes allow for some really great captures...Some folks don't think much of them..I think they are beautiful....Michelle

Brilliant pictures!!!

Springman said...

Stunning shots. I think sometimes it gets by us just what a dynamic flying "machine" a duck's wings are. Your pictures leave no doubt as to the beauty of that movement. Great stuff.
Cheers Sir!

What delightfully themed hotos. Love the angel poses, splayed flight feathers and the way they hug themselves . . . I'm still smiling . . .

Marvelous series! I didn't know you could get so much of a Mallard spreading its wings.

Amazing shots, Brian. You will have to share your lens and settings sometime -- for us amateurs! :)
