Here's a little collection of Ducks in Flight that I took while trying to practice getting the buggers while flying.

Hey Kevin,

Better to have butt shots than no shots. From a flight point of view it looks like you just caught her at the stall point in the last one. :)

Thanks Keith for the nice words. No, I didn't use flash. I did a minor adjustment of levels to brighten it up in PS and very little USM on the last two.

Concerning butt shots, I'm just happy I get some in focus. I'm not too picky from which angle they're taken. :) I've got butt shots, belly shots, and side shots. Gotta keep practising....

Thanks for the kind words Gale, Brian, John & Dennis. I got kind of lucky with the timing of this landing shot. I don't know what the S2 is capable of in continuous mode. I just click, pan, click.

I like to try to get them just as they're landing where they look like they're water skiing. :)
