Lovely. Well done for capturing her in flight. I love the DA*300 - excellent lens.

those are great ZoT
Ducks are really hard to get and those are really nice! You have a steady hand. (I have a caffeine problem myself)

Well done indeed just a tad faster shutter and you would have a perfect freeze frame on the wings. Although the blur does add to the photo.

I agree these are some beautiful shots... Ducks fly pretty fast so being able to catch her in flight like that is very good..

GREAT Shots!! Thanks for sharing them!!
