Since there was a definite outcry of support for more birds after the last post, I’ve decided to appease the teaming millions and feature a bird for this post. This particular set of pictures is actually a bit of a surprise. If you recall, I introduced the Northern Pintail back in June of last year (link here). In that post I mentioned there was a better set of pictures likely to come from the second day of shooting.
I managed to process this second set of images yet they didn’t find their way onto the blog. Nothing like spending time on something only to find there were no fruits of the labor. As you can tell, the missing images were found (while processing the Katydids from the last post). I do like these shots better – the previous ones were mostly from behind and didn’t give a good view of the overall bird. The right side view:
the left side view:
and the front! That pretty much covers all the angles with the tail side covered in the previous post.
