Northern Pintail - A Long Distance Traveler

The Pintails are pretty looking ducks that migrate to the southern continents at the onset of winter. They are usually found in the open wetlands and Bharatpur makes an excellent venue for their stay. They were mostly seen closer to the shoreline only in the mornings post which they were very elusive.

The details on the male bird are very exquisite and though the bird isn't very colorful, it's still looks very stunning.

Tech Specs:
Canon 1D Mark IV + Canon 600mm F4 L IS with 1.4x TC
Shot at 840mm, 1/1250s, F6.3 and ISO 1600.
