Congrats! Nice work!!!!

This is one of the reasons why I love birds/wildlife, because it's not just another photoshop contest that is most landscapes. The moments happen and then they are gone, they're strived for, chased, and among many disappointments and frustrations, enduring perseverence leads to a victory like this!

Super shots. Pintails are always worth seeing. I didn't recognise the last bird at all, but, looking it up, I see it's a Bronze-winged Duck, a South American species.

Nice shots, Lester, especially the Pintail. Did you manage to ID this last duck?
Edit : I see that Jack beat me to it. Thanks, Jack.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
