Pair Of Blue Winged Teal

Pair Of Blue Winged Teal

These two swam along directly in front of me. I was holding the lens up, not moving, waiting for them to move into the view finder.

I waited, and waited… they both stopped around the same time.

OK, enough. I snapped the shot.

These Teal are usually shy and I don’t get many good opportunities with them. Expecting them to be shy I held my gear up not moving…. approximately forever!

As expected my arm almost fell off and the birds paddled around me with not a care in the world.

  1. Beautiful close-up! I’ve rarely seen these ducks at home, they are so shy. Got very lucky at 10,000 Islands NWR with a flock of them out in the wetlands, I took way too many photos, lol. Post forthcoming!
