More Northern Pintails
I took so many photos I am going to break them into separate post so this one I will focus on the Pintails. They were quite phenomenal today. Constant take offs and landings meant there was always something to watch. A pair of Northern Harriers steadily buzzed the marsh causing large groups of the Northern Pintails to take off, circle and land again.
It was a good time to practice flight shots. I have gotten out of practice and that is what it takes. The light was a bit better today than it was in early winter but is still takes practice to capture the shot when the light optimally captures the details of the birds. I played with the background a bit on this photo.
