Very beautiful ducks. My whole life I didn't realize they were in my area until someone pointed out we were on the Pacific Flyway. Now I see whole lot of different species I never knew about. So the past few months I've been going crazy taking pictures before they fly back home. And the Pintails are one of my favorites.

Elegant is the right word. I've been trying to photograph these ducks whenever I get the chance. We get some here in Minnesota, particularly on the western edge of the state, but chances of photographing them for me have been scant. Maybe this spring I'll have to make a little trip west to see if I can find them. In the meantime, I'll just be jealous...grin. Nice series of photos!
