I'm not sure what set those birds off but the whole just took off including mallards, seagulls, tern, avocet, ibis among others.
Taken at the Bird Viewing Preserve in Henderson, Nevada.

Nice capture of this fancy and vivid group of ducks and seagulls in full action !

Maybe you scared them to get a better picture? ;-). Whatever the reason, this "mass migration" is quite impressive and I can imagine there was some noise from the probably hundreds of flapping wings. You managed a very good sharpness on the birds as well as the background and the light and colors are fine.

It sure takes a good air traffic controller to avoid collisions. Good action shot under a good light enhancing the birds colors.

Countless birds on pic. space, Eleu, and all taken-off in tandem. Some noise had startled them, probably.
Fine set the camera to the speed, collected a sharp and vivid photo.

these beautiful birds are very rewarding subjects for the photographer and you have captured the mallards excellently. The photo is very well composed. It is especially this fantastic light that makes the image attractive. My compliments!

Fine 'stop action' capture of the huge collection of water fowl in varying wing pumping positions. Colorful and in fine resolution.

a beautiful and fascinating image with sweeping movement and great vibrance. The light and colours are natural, vivid and lovely and enhance the viewer's pleasure even more. There's also fine depth and sharpness and the mingling of various species in this scene is interesting and fun. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Fantastic picture of the flying birds. Splendid view. it would look even better in larger format. Very impressive anyway.

Small but fine picture with all these water birds with open wings.
These picture is real nice through the colour and subject.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Now here's something I'd just love to see for real..
What a beautiful action shot: the rising movement on the water and sound thru the wings combine most effectively. This is like something from Planet Earth. Brilliant sight for you and allowing us to share your moment of joy. Just be spectacular to witness, Congrats
