    Very good - shame there's no catchlight in the eyes but unfortunately with animals you can't get everything you want all the time. Would have been good with the same angle but the duck coming towards to camera slightly.

    15 shots is a very very good hit rate for animals. I tend to base one saleable shot from every 2 rolls with wildlife - people are soooo much easier!!!

    "Shooting ducks" like this finds my favours. The other way I find a bit sad... though they taste good...

    Great capture. Like spike000 said, 1 in 15 is darn good.

    Last time out for birds, it was more like 1 in 50 for me.
