[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The next "mug shot" is from the Bahama Pintail (Anas bahamensis), with a colorful beak this guy is ready to party..

This species occurs on waters with a degree of salinity, such as brackish lakes, estuaries and mangrove swamps.

The White-cheeked Pintail feeds on aquatic plants and small creatures obtained by dabbling. The nest is on the ground under vegetation and near water

Hello Everton,
A fine portrait of this nicely coloured bird!
Good details in the plumage, and a framing that directs attention to the bird's head...
Blurred background makes the bird stand out well!

Hi Everton,

A nice mug shot - but he won't win for most wanted. He looks so cute and cuddly. The colors of the bill are amazing. Nice details of the face and plummage. I'm wondering if you had this mug shot theme in mind when you snapped his picture.


Dear FRiend,
Magnifiques détails, superbe beau close-up avec de trčs belles couleurs.
