There was a whole flock of pintails at Merritt Island when Harry and I were there. I got a sequence of a few of them flying by. These aren't really colorful shots, and pintails aren't really colorful birds, but I like the way they turned out. Kind of moody I guess. I think they look like paintings you would see in a hunter's lodge. They are cropped by about 45%.

I liked the tight formation.
