    Had some fun out at Bosque this year mostly shooting ducks and cranes. The geese were a lot harder to get good light on this year because of the water placement.

    Very appealing landing pose! Good BG, sharp details. My only wish is for the tail and far foot to be better illuminated - the light coming slightly from your left prevented that, but overall still a very good duck-in-flight image!

    Excellent action image of this beautiful bird, Kurt. Exposure, colors, and details all look great, and the BG won't get any better. The wings are in an interesting position, and I actually like the shadows they cast on the neck. Extended neck is fun. My only issue is the bit of the far wing poking out of the belly. It looks like a foot but isn't. It's just a bit strange. But you had no control over that and nailed everything you needed to.

    Looks good to me Kurt. Killer pose and I love the colours and that gradient type BG.
