  1. Magnificent pictures, as usual. I just love the first one, and the last one. It makes me wonder how many pictures you've "wasted" to get the mallard with his landing gear down, at impact. Wonderful!

    1. Thanks, especially for mentioning the "wasted" pictures -- I did take a load of pictures before I managed to capture the landing. Still, I'm not quite satisfied with the picture, so I'll keep trying.


Speak out, I'm listening.
