More to come…



  1. Giggles :-)! Great photo. I’ve only seen one Northern Pintail ever and it was a “fuzzy distance” away. I like their elegant necks and bills and tails.

  2. What I find particularly amusing about this photo is that it appears they are walking on water 🙂

    • Someone else said the same thing. 🙂

      Thank you for the comment Joanne I’m so glad you liked it.

  3. So special to see this Deborah! Thanks for sharing with us

  4. So sweet…

  5. This was a fresh and fun photograph of these two pintails. It makes it look like the personality of each is showing through their wordless action, Deborah! 😉

  6. Love it Deborah!

  7. Awesome, Deborah! I got a giggle out this one! 🙂

  8. Ha ha ha. Wonderful.

  9. Apt title, Deborah, as it certainly looks as though the one on the right is trying to get the attention of the other bird. 🙂


  10. It is definitely wordless! I have no words to describe what the photo makes me feel when looking at it – mesmoried, may not e corrctly spelled but that’s the word I was looking fo = s

  11. Is the one on the right whispering some northern pintail gossip, possibly about their no good southern rivals. Lovely shot, Deborah 🙂

    • LOL! Probably! Thank you Phil! I think he’s telling her, “Don’t look now Mrs. Shoveler is coming!”. 🙂

  12. the water is so magically beautiful!

  13. Is the one on the right landing, or is the water shallow. It’s a great photo. It’ looks a bit magical.

    • Thank you Dan! He’s sitting in the water. This part of the pond was shallow.

      • He looks like he’s balanced on a small point. I love the photo!

        • Thank you Dan! I am wondering if Pintails make little mud mounds to stand on like a lot of ducks do? I know they like to perch on fallen logs in the marsh ponds as well as on the little islands in them.
