Pintails are my absolute favorite ducks. This one was taken in Texas this year between Christmas and New Years.

Thanks guys,

This is one of my best Pintail shots. I was so tickled to get it as they are not a duck thatwe see very often here in our Minnesota flyway.They are quite common however inTexas, so it was a definite treat for me. The evening light was also a great bonus.

I too think the Pintail is striking and one of the most elegant and graceful ducks around. I've only seen them at distance but hope one day to get close enough for a shot.
Nice job on the capture Tom. I like the way the flight feathers lay across the back.
