We found a few Pintails in the Arasaki Crane Center. A great place for closeups. And later on we found a huge amount of pintails on a wet field. 
I think the third image is quite fun. I captured the Pintail pair just behind the cranes legs :)

Linking up with:   Wild Bird Wednesday and Weekend Reflection
