This was at the same small lake where the Lapwing flight shot was taken. There were actually huge flocks of these Whistling Ducks present, often making dramatic passes overhead. With that many birds, it was actually difficult to get a decent shot, with so many in the frame, at different focal planes. I tried to isolate individuals, with some success (I had to clone out part of one in the lower left of this frame).
