The pintails in Bosque are so much more approachable then those in Europe, this male flying right by me as I was trying (and failing) to sneak up upon a pair of cinnamon teal

Hallo Jeroen,
Dit is echt wat je noemt een voltreffer. Perfecte scherpte met de beweging in de vleugelpunten. Kan niet beter! Prachtige kleuren, uitstekende witbalans tegen een mooie bijpassende vage achtergrond. Klasse!

Superb picture. You got it simply right! Well done!

One small comment: There are some dark an birgtt spots in the pic. You could have cleaned them easily. Cleaning the mirror may help, too.

Enjoy the rest f the weekend, Jeroen,

Hello Jeroen,
What a fantastic shot of this lovely drake Pintail. A gorgeous specimen displaying excellent detail and rich natural colors. Great eye contact with just a tad bit of catchlight. Exposure is perfect and I love the blurred BG. The falling water droplets are and added bonus. Well done!!

amazing perfect capture, TFS Ori

Hi Jeroen,

A great shot of the pintail on a flyby. Great focus and dof giving the impression of movement of the wing tips. Good Natural colous against a very nice background.

Thanks for sharing, regards Bill.
