After several frames the third bird dropped behind and the two in focus got fully separated while flying together.

Spectacular colors and lighting, Karl. Great timing capturing both the mergansers two sharp with enough separation.

An excellent image of the pair in formation, Karl. Certainly, a theme of high speed flight, is captured, here.

Dynamic flight shot highlighted by having two birds in sync with each other. Terrific timing.
