    got a new lens so I took it to the park and apparently it's time to find a mate. these ducks would swarm a female and do these funny things to impress the female

    Not sure if this guy was really good or really bad!

    Welcome to the ThePhotoForum, Nick.
    The first one is good, albeit quite centrally composed, but it represents the male duck's mating dance well.
    The second is funny! :D

    Thanks all. they were take with the Sony 500mm Reflex lens, it does require alot of light as its a constent F8, I was impressed I was able to capture these on an overcast day handheld.


    I have others similar to the first that were composed a little different but liked the bubbles in this one which I though made it work.
