Hi Paul,
Superb shot of this handsome mallard in flight and also at a moment of singing. Great DOF, POV and framing. Perfect shot!.


Hi Paul
It's not easy to shoot during the flight of a bird. But sometime we are lucky... The animal is common but the picture very good

A lovely capture of this beautiful mallard inflight shot. Excellent composition and sharp details. Very good timing. Thanks a lot for sharing.

It is an amazing picture of a Mallard flying and singing, Paul.

Hi Paul,a beautifull artwork.No need words to comment,the pic talk alone,just my best compliments,Luciano

Hi Paul, this is a very well shot Mallard with excellent detail and colour, but what really makes it is the perfect positioning you have him in in this crop, with the wings spread, and quacking even.

Thanks, John

hi Paul,
je reviens sur cette prise tout à fait intéressante. Le vol associé au chant est assez rare. Bravo pour cette réalisation.
