Karl, When I first looked I assumed the back duck would out of focus. Excellent job extending the DOF to get both of them.

What a wonderful composition, a beautiful duet that perfectly balances everything,
very beautiful also the fly actions of both ducks that create dynamism for the observer's eye, almost like a sequence.
Really a great work.

To get one this nicely would be really good. To get them both, a male and female no less, really makes this a special image.

An extra special image, Karl, with the pair! The opposing wing positions, adds to the photo, as well.

Nice image. Good DOF control and detail. Perhaps a little more room for the drake to move into?
