A terrific flight shot, which has a beautiful three-dimensional quality to it. Well done, Axel.

+1. One of the best BIF images I've seen in a while.  There's nothing about it I would change.  Beautiful image.

Wonderful flight shot of this handsome merganser drake, Axel! Exquisite detail of the colours and markings in sweet light. A beauty!
