Ducks-Near Collision

Three mallards in descending flight.  The two drakes are almost colliding with each other as they try to stay with the hen.  There is some distance compression with a 400mm lens but the two ducks were still very close to bumping.
It happened quickly.  The motor drive was running on slow speed (3.5 fps) as I tracked the ducks yet the images both before and after this one did not show any potential mid-air problem.
