nice shots, #1 appeals the most (shows the most feather detail with the wing in the downstroke) to me

What they said! ;) Seriously, I also like the wing detail in number 1 and I've recently tried my hand shootin' ducks so I know it's hard to get a bead on these fellows. Nice capture.

Both good shots, I'm liking #1 best as the water reflections are stronger and help fill in (for me) the distraction of the lack of them in shot #2. Not much you could have done about it:) I really like the first one :thumbup:
