I'm glad that you reposted your geese. I was wondering why is your other thread locked?
I like no 1 & 5, for the water splash and the reflections. Very nice captured Sandra.
Sandra, you again have captured some great shots.
I love the sharpness on the water drops in No. 1 - did you mean to focus on the water splashes, or on the duck?
Nice detail in the large breasted duck in No. 2 - pity he did not look up so you could catch his eye.
No. 3 IMO has a touch too much brightness.
My favourite is still No. 4 which I believe was in your last Thread. Such a natural looking shot with great sharpness.

Looks like he was having some fun, there. Nice series here, Sandra. I like the sharpness in both the bird and the water and you have captured a very cool action shot. I think my favorite in this series is #2. I like the composition and the sharpness, and it leaves me wondering what he is looking at or searching for.

Fun series Sandra. I love no. 2 for your DOF , clarity/detail in the feathers, beautiful color tones, and the overall composition with the bird filling much of the frame.

Sandra, Well done with this series, I like how you have captured this duck in so many different poses. Although as kaye mentioned #3 may be a little bright, it is my fav. I like hoe you can see how wet he is and the splashes of water around him. I also like #5 with the ripples of water around the duck.
