  3. Hi Bob,
    Super images of the Pintail, not my favourite duck but very close to being so. Not as elegant as the Smew.
    All the best,
    John

  16. Really beautiful pictures of these beautiful ducks.
    Sharp and clear and the hairs in the feathers can be counted.

  17. Sorry, Bob, but I can't agree with you and John. For me, the Pintail is the more handsome of the two - the Smew is the flashier! And both species are prone to frustratingly (for the photographer) long periods of sleeping. ;-} As usual, you have managed to capture superb detail in your shots. With my best wishes - take good care - - - Richard

    I'd like to speak to you in private, how can we do that?

  19. Beautiful pintail portraits Bob! And I even like the name of your birding place, Rushdie Hide must be a wonderful place to watch the water birds.
