Always nice to get a pair together in the frame. Nice photos, but I would suggest that the dark eyes in the Wigeons really need a catchlight - you can add a spot in post-processing - I did that in the third photo in this thread:

Ready-set go!

Thanks! I will try that to see how it works out. The light was getting dim at the end of the day around 5pm. I have a hard time to get the picture to show the eye even I added +1 2/3 EV when I shot it.
