  1. Hi Bob,
    Northern Pintails are such a delightful duck that this year I have seen but only at silly distances. They can also be very difficult to get a decent image from, well done.
    All the best, John

  5. I love this duck! Fantastic shots. Can you imagine Bert Jansch doing a song called "Pintail"? I really appreciate the tunes you occasionally pick. I can forget how old I am and pretend it's still the late 60s....:)

  8. Bob in the light

    Bob travels our eyes
    to the nature
    of feelings

    Bob travels our voices
    to the land
    of his art

    Bob travels our hands
    to the land
    of his beauty

    Such a deep invitation
    from his heart
    to the dream
    of our eyes

    P.S. : I admire you my friend.
