A wonderful capture of this beautiful pair after take off, Tusar! I love that you caught the female with her wings raised and the drake with wings on the downstroke, and both against that lovely reeds background. Well done!

A terrific shot of this pair with both in focus and revealing sharp detail. The background habitat is a bonus! Excellent work, Tusar!

A real treat! Two for the price on one and I do love that reed background.

Having the male and female together in the same image, is special; combined with the poses , colours and sharpness all shown in your photo,
makes for a superb picture, Tusar!

I really enjoy takeoff images of dabbling ducks, this is a good one! Maybe a bit more space behind the tailing bird if you have it.
