    Default Marbled Godwit

    Pretty standard stuff. Far wing could be a bit lower, but far from a deal breaker in my eyes.

    These were noticeably absent from my local spot until my last few visits. It's nice to have them present and cooperating like in past years.

    Love the bird, the flight pose, the background, and the image. Did you get my e-mail on an old hybrid duck image?

    Oh, yeah! Forgot about that. Yeah, that bird is classic 'Pinwall' (Pintail + Gadwall) according to all the duck dorks I consulted. I can see your wigeon observation though. It's always fun to find those sorts of mixed up ducks!

    Very nice and sharp BIF image.
    I posted an image like this a few months ago and it is almost identical to yours except mine is flying right to left!

    Dorian, great in flight shot of this one. Sun angle looks perfect and light quality is awesome!

    Angle of flight is equally as nice and great detail.

    I'd be tempted to a look at one with the subject just a touch lower in frame.

    Beautiful capture man!

    Sweet. Great flight angle. Lovely light really brings out the colors of the bird. Well done.
