Both sharp and excellent down wing position... Just great bird photography.

Very nice. Don't have those here, so that's always a bonus to see. Beautiful shot and work.

In sync, very nicely done. I like how close to the water the wing is of the leading duck.

Only one thing better than a beautiful image of a single - and that's a beautiful image of a pair. Wonderful capture of this pair with lovely symmetry and details Axel.
