Really looks great full-res. Really like that downstroke wing position. Well-captured!

Very nice flight image, especially when clicked on. Great detain and pose. I see a hint of rusty color in his cheek/neck area and wonder if there might be a Eurasian wigeon back in his pedigree.

Great detail and flight pose, and the trailing water droplets finish off the shot beautifully.

I opened it last nigh but never managed to comment as one of my cats decided to sit in front of the monitor.
Beautiful image of a handsome drake.

Beautiful flight capture, Hugh! Superb pose and detail and well worth a click to see the uncompressed version.
