I just managed to get this mallard in frame as it took off, it can be difficult as any photographer might tell you to keep your subject in shot when you zoom in.

Mallard Duck in Flight

Many times I’ve wanted to get a bird in flight and missed due to being to zoomed, there out of the shot before you can react and take a picture.

I was actually aiming to get a good close up of this duck, but it flew off and I ended up with a better picture :)

I love action in photographs.
