another superb shot.
Just enough motion blur to create movement and yet sharp enough to show good detail.
How did you manage to get them both in focus at f11?!
Great action shot.

Once more great action very colorful and sharp, well compose
and perfect crop, TFS best regards/Lawhill
Fantastic action shot, Harry. : )
I like their proximity. Creates a lot of tension.
The fact that their wings are pointed in different directions, up for the top duck, down for the duck below. Makes for a great composition.
Makes me think of the Blue Angels.
TFS. : )

Very nice in-flight capture of American Common Merganser showing both male and the female. Focus and sharpness is very good in both. Pose and the light is very good. Well done and TFS

Superb composition of the mal and female American Megnser in flight.
The water body BG is really a good contrast against the exposed white body of the birds.
The lights are just perfect.
Very well done
TFS & Cheers

Echt een schitterende opname van deze twee zaagbekken. Om ze in het water te zien is al bijzonder, maar vliegend is het helemaal geweldig. Mooie actiefoto die bovendien goed scherp is. Knap gedaan.

Great shot, anyway this is not goosander as You wrote, but Red-breasted Merganser ( Mergus serrator) rere species in Europe
