Matt,

Thank you very much...I must say I was pretty happy with those ducks - they flew by very fast, but stayed in tight formation, which allowed me to catch them in a nice wing pose.  I was only in the normal continuous shooting mode, not speed priority...but it was enough.  I had probably 12 shots of those ducks, of which 4 were properly focused - not too bad a hit rate considering the lack of C-AF tracking - I just kept it in AF-S and cycled the shutter to refocus as needed.  Then it was just down to which of the 5 shots I got had the best light, color, and pose.
