I got to the creek and saw four males, but they disappeared in then reeds.
Then I heard some wingbeats, turned around and started shooting. Unfortunately I did not have time to change the shutter speed, hence some motion blur.

A touch of motion blur but with that downswept wing you have shown off the gorgeous colours Karl!

Excellent in-flight image, Karl- looks fine at 1/1250, to me, but I know you normally use a higher shutter speed.
