[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Done on the shore of Lake Ontario - Mississauga

An unusual bird for this area.

Slim and long-necked, the Northern Pintail (Anas acuta) has a distinctive silhouette. The male is easy to identify by his striking markings and long tail, but even the female can be recognized by her graceful, long-necked shape.

Hello Mario !
Wow, this is an amazing picture ! You timing was absolutely perfect, you have frozen the birds and the wtar droplets at the prfect moment, with excellent details. I also like the natural colors and the beautiful composition of this picture. Very well done !

This is a top act! , love the picture filled with action and directional space. The catch light in the birds eyes adds value to the image.

Buna Mario.
Superba imagine si o calitate foarte buna a pozei.
Multe salutari.Alin.

Great clarity Mario. I love the framing as well. It's one nice looking duck and you got good lighting out of what looks like an overcast day. Well done. Trevor

I like the sharpness of you picture. attitude is not the best one on my opinion, but like it anyway
