Hi All,

So whilst the weather once again closes in in the UK I decided to review some footage to see if there were any shots I could use in another video. Whilst watching my Sedbergh Bridge footage I noticed what can only be described as a Kamikaze Mallard duck that had a rather close call with the Mavic 2 Pro. I didn't see this at the time as I was trying to get my settings right before flying under the bridge.

after several situations - pigeon-kamekalze, raven-kamikaze, ... I changed the war paint of my Mavik. Now he is a wasp! Or a bee, which is also not bad. Even eagles are now drifting away!

Not a bad idea lol. I do have some decals leftover from my park. Maybe worth using them on the Mavic 2 Pro.

Great capture Duncan - that was indeed a close shave but thankfully all ended well for you (and the duck).

Way too close for comfort, thankfully both birds survived.
