At my duck pond.. Should I eject the OOF Wood Ducks?
I thought they added to the scene but maybe just a distraction?

Excellent incoming flight, Dan.
The OOF ducks in the background add depth.
Nice to see you posting here.

A very good approach shot — love the symmetry. Regarding the Wood Ducks, there are advantages to both approaches. Left in they add depth, but removed the image is cleaner and the symmetry is enhanced. A fine image either way.

Great head-on shot- I'm not distracted by the wood ducks- hardly noticed them. I think that is because the oncoming bird is so dramatic. Well done!

Very nice and sharply detailed incoming action, while the oof background birds set the scene at the duckpond. It works for me!
