Caught this male Bufflehead in flight. Bonus with the iridescent color on forehead!
The ducks in the garden are fed by people and will allow close approach.

That is a great capture Kent! The timing is perfect as is the shutter speed! The whites however look a bit hot/overexposed, if you shot this in RAW you may very well be able to recover the lost white details. Nontheless, a fantastic image in my eyes!

Very dynamic yet sharp enough and with great details. The exposure control is also one element that brings home the success of this shot.

absolutely amazing shot, Kent... love the iridescence on his head, and just the right amount of blur to convey the speed these little suckers fly at!!
