Well, not really..I came across this little gal. I was a long way away, but as soon as she spotted me, she decided to take off. These are full crops....Don

She sees me....

yep, they're fast little critters, aren't they? it's fun to watch them getting airborne, and you caught a nice sequence here...

These are some of cutest little divers. The white cheek patch on the females reminds me of the Nike swoosh. Nice captures Don.

Great sequence, Don. I can't count how many blurred shots I have of buffleheads in which I tried to capture something similar. Their speed makes them really tough to shoot. Well done.
