Long-Tailed Duck banking by gregster09 Long-Tailed Duck banking by gregster09
These guys are very fast fliers, and in my opinion look a bit funny when flying. For me, this is a winter duck that will be leaving soon.

Awesome. How do you support your 600mm for birds in flight?

Generally on a tripod actually, though I will go handheld sometimes. With practice you can whip the rig around quite quickly even on a tripod.

What kind of tripod head do you use if you don't mind me asking?
