I made a quick visit to Baskett Slough National WildlifeRefuge yesterday afternoon. This female Northern Pintail is one of the photos I took in the late afternoon light of 4:30. I have read that good photographs are all about light. I seem to be a little slow on catching on to the important points of good photography, but this image helps me understand the concept. This female is one of several Northern Pintails I saw yesterday, all of which I presume are recent arriving migrants from the north.
