Captured this Mallard duck flying almost right over my head while chasing a female duck. These guys fly really fast.

Eyup. They're the fighter jets and the geese are the bombers.  Nice shot.

"BOOM!" Oh I wish I could hunt.. I'm just a city boy dreaming of the country. Great shot though.

Wow, that's a perfect capture.
I love how his wings are slightly blurred but his body is in perfect focus!

Excellent capture! :D

Impressive photo, especially because I do know how fast these guys fly, especially when chasing a potential mate! (Mallards frequent the pond I live on.) Great detail and beautiful composition.:)
