I really enjoy the group shots, multiple birds in a tight formation. The difficult part is to catch them all in focus. So I blast away, and hope for the best!
So with this concept, having the ducks at a distance, I have a better chance to catch them all and sharp. More depth of field and a better chance to catch a group in flight. Usually a bit of a crop on these images, so the Sony cameras seem to manage the files well.
Hoping for some ice in the water later on when winter sets in, that will be more challenging and more fun! thanks for looking.
