I was down at the Forks trying to find some ducklings or goslings to photograph when this squabble fell right into where I happened to be pointing the camera. A brief fight and then everything was quiet once again. Used levels in CS3.


f6.3 1/640 155mm

Your shutter speed captured all the action perfectly. What luck to be in the right place at the right time to catch this most unusual squabble.

Geat pic. Jan. Nice explanation of how you got to take it. It`s that same old story isn`t it...right time right place. I love the water droplets (is that what you call them?) It makes the action come to life. I can hear the "Donald Duck" noise coming from them! Keep them coming Yan. It makes me want to get out there.....Charlie

Super stop action shot I really like the movement of the water and the movement of the wing, I just wish I could see the eye of the duck on the left but I would say that is minor.

Good POV of the action..why can't they just get along? ;-)
Interesting behavioral shot!

Well captured Jan!
Sigh, boys will be boys.....no doubt there was a female nearby?
Good that you were ready for the action when it happened, these moments are so easily missed and you have to be quick on the shutter button to capture them which you obviously were Wink

Vic.
