What a large outstanding set, Tam. Too many good ones. (Never too many good ones) In #11 I've never seen that display. The sex life of a female duck sure looks like a tough one.

Such characters. You got plenty of good poses, that's for sure. Well done.

Lovely coverage, excellent quality. The feeding and breeding behavior bring it to another level. Can't recall ever seeing a picture of one dinning on lobster. Thank you

For such a pretty bird, they look quite comical when they get all puffed up and stretch their neck way up (#5). This is a stellar set Tam. Great poses and action. Very enjoyable viewing.

Very nice action Tam, you captured the mating dance and antics wonderfully!!! The white balance looks a bit odd in some of these, a bit cool. Maybe warming them up would make them that much better
