The Blue Wing Teal is very common in the marshes here (South Carolina). Yet the number of photographs I have, decent ones, is minimal. The water is brown, the ducks are brown, the glare is even brown.
These 2 birds were off in a smaller pool rather than with flocks in open water. The glare was softer since there was tree cover, and besides being a small pool I moved closer. Better yet, they let me.
I don’t think the teals will be in this area much longer. In another month this should be a Heron rookery. That means lots of activity, and the alligators that take advantage of it.
