Woodie in Flight

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
Elegant, streamlined and beautiful! Superb colors around its head. Was it a total surprise?


Was your camera already in your hands?

How many shots did you take?

One of the hardest birds to get close to for an in flight close up such as this..they are just so skittish. Good capture.

Thanks, y’all.
Asher, yep in my hands. I heard first then saw several wood ducks flying way off. One cut in front of me so swung behind him and followed through like I do with a shotgun hunting. Think about 3 or 4 as I try to be more controlled taking the shots rather than spray or pray and do that at airshows as well.
