I love to shoot these ducks in flight. The glossy colours on the male in perfect lighting conditions are hard to resist. But these drakes are quite shy and would tend to fly away when approached.

Shot with Nikon D500 + Nikon 300 mm f/2.8 ( VR-I ) + 1.4X TC

Biru, a great takeoff shot with wings on the down stroke and trailing water droplets. The attractive natural habitat in the background is fantastic, and makes the image for me. I very much like the relatively smaller size of the duck and how you placed it within the frame. A top-notch image!

Very nice take-off shot Biru. Ducks around here are very shy since they get hunted during during hunting season.
