Default Northern Pintail Portraits

The light was very nice despite the winds. This Pintail was sunning in a sheltered lagoon.

Yes, they are one of my favorites too. They always look like they're dress in a tux.

Thank you for your nice comments. The "Alligator" behind the Pintail was the log he was standing on. LOL, it does look like a gator though, doesn't it?

Thanks for taking the time to look.
