I tried to remember everything I was told about the last photo of ducks I posted so hopefully these will be better (apart from cutting off the end of the duck on two of them but I was photographing through a fence lol)

You are certainly improving each and every time you post, Sharon. The little tiny things like cutting off a Duck's tail can happen to the best of us. It's fixable. In fact, you have a very nice tail in the third that could be used to repair the loss in the second.
On the positive side, the sun being on the wrong side of the duck didn't phase you and you've handled the shadows very well. Nicely done.

If (thankfully it's rare) I take a photograph of a whole horse but chop it's hooves off I will never show that photograph. What I do instead is to crop much more of the photograph out so it looks as if I took the photograph like that on purpose. And if that doesn't work then I bin it.

In the second photograph you could just go for the head shot cropping out the feet and some of the body :)

These photographs are so much better cropped and the third one snorkelling is really good in this respect. Well exposed shots too and for me, the last is your best - perfect focusing on the eye. Actually, after another look, the third's probably the best.

Another thing you can try is getting down lower, that way your not looking down at the animal. Otherwise, these shots are pretty good.

Thank you :)
I will edit and crop some off the pictures :)
I couldn't get any lower this time as there were people everywhere, I would have had to lay down and you can guarantee someone would fall over me lol I got some funny looks just sitting lol
