Up Up And Away!

Northern Pintail

F/6.3, 1/500, ISO 250.

Northern Pintail Duck

Day 11 / 365

Sometimes I just want to fly away, but it is not that easy and the airports are too crowded.  🙂

Interesting Fact:  The male Pintail ‘s call is a soft proop-proop whistle, similar to that of the Common Teal, whereas the female has a Mallard-like descending quack, and a low croak when flushed.  (  http://www.withmephotographyblog.com/11-interesting-facts-about-the-northern-pintail  )
