My attention was first drawn to this group of Mallards by the large amount of noise they were making as they flew across the reservoirs. The next thing to catch my eye was the erratic flying of the one to the far left. I was going to show you a sequence of six frames demonstrating just how inelegant his flying was but then closer inspection of this one suggests a possible reason for the volume and indeed somewhat meandering flightpath. Another duck appears to be biting his derriere. Canon EOS 40D
