You sure can get some strong positions for your bird compositions... this is a good example of that with the spread wings and the outstretched webbed feet of the two ducks coming in for a landing with the viewer feeling as if they are right there on the water. The contrast between the duo of ducks and the water helps to bring a 3D feel to the picture.

Excellent capture. Do you use a blind?

Looks like the Aflac commercial duck in disguise. Your timing is impeccable - unique perspective - really showcases how awkward these guys are in landing.

Very good indeed, looks almost painterly with the processing, the legs perhaps slightly too orange for my eyes, but I'm not an expert, its really composed perfectly and the focus spot on, excellent.

I especially like the staggered comp & head-on POV here Bill.
Have a great weekend!

Great crop which gives the impression you had to duck, (sorry Smile ); they really look so comic from this angle!
