Taken earlier today, along a nearby river, I was trying to get some different poses as the mallards flew by.

The first is a standard one - flying right by me....

Nice captures Don. I like how the second duck looks a bit awkward.

I like all of these, Dan. Just glad I'm not a passenger on the #2 flight.:-) Nice job on the BIF!

Thanks, everyone.

Ellen, you need a lot of light to shoot fast movers like ducks in flight at ISO 200. Mine were shot at ISO 640 to 1000, all at1/2000 sec. And for every photo thatI posted, there were anywhere from 5 to 8 shots of the same subject that I had to discard 'cause they weren't in focus or they were partly out of the frame. I shoot in burst mode all the time and I have my camera set for continuous focus when I'm expecting movement from my subjects - like birds. That and I have a lens that can focus pretty fast - which is an added advantage. Hope that helps a bit. Cheers, Dan
