John, this image ahs excellent exposure. The dark areas balance well with the whites. Good job.

We don't see many of these in flight in Birds gallery, John, so this is a real treat and it really is a superb capture of this impressive drake. Exposure, pose and detail are all beautifully handled in the soft light and the end result is a beauty! Well done!

John, excellent flight angle and flight pose on this Eider. As Ed points out the exposure is spot-on. Very nicely done!

+1.  I must have missed this one while away.  Agree totally with Carol on her comments.  Top notch image in all respects.
