Hi all 😃 My post for Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Flight.
Down by the Fourth & Clyde Canal, I was having a chat with a female mallard, stood on top of a wall (the mallard, not me 😂).
She was suddenly startled into flight by a male mallard; you can just see him entering the left of the shot.
I tried tracking them as they flew off, but thier proximity & speed made it difficult; the low light conditions didn’t help either. That being said, the following shots, although blurred, give a good indication of how fast they were going, & made the background almost abstract, particularly the first in the sequence.

The third shot looks surreal! Nice shots, Jez.
Thank you so much 😊
3 2 1 .. lift off, we have lift off, safe flight everyone
That duck really wants to lift off!
I think she felt a bit harrassed 😂
I can totally relate to the female, just trying to enjoy her day until a male came along to disturb her peace hahaha jk 🙂
The last photo is a beauty 🙂
Thanks, Brian 😊
