Flight Of The Mallards

I went out yesterday for a couple of hours looking for my friend the Kingfisher. Even though I managed to get a few photos they weren't up to much as I wasn't quite close enough. It was still quite an experience though. I think me wearing my khaki green clothes didn't help against the snowy backdrop!Tongue.
So I decided to have some fun with the ducks and get some in-flight shots instead. I actually find this quite a difficult skill but I thought these were ok.
Thanks as always for your c&c'sGrin

It may be a difficult skill, but you've certainly pulled it off here. I enjoyed viewing them all and would find it hard to choose a favourite. However, Vs 4, 5 and 7 stand out for me.

A well-captured set, Ryan. Some good movement in the wings but v1 probably wins it for me.

Good set of action shots well captured, love No 3

Interesting set of bird images but V1 stands out as sharpest and best.
The light was maybe against you as you have used high ISO and fast shutter speed.
So you did well to capture what you did.
