Teal Ducks

Blue-winged Teal0296I had ducks on the brain today, specifically a couple of teal ones, the Blue-winged and Green-winged Teal. My eyes glazed over as I spaced out while staring at a photo of some Blue-wings and thinking, Which teal do I post today? When I came back from wherever it is I go during my creative process, I was fixated on a fuzzy, duck shaped stump in the background, and then I realized… they’re BOTH in this photo!!! I completely forgot about the day I simultaneously shot these teals, and so the decision has been made… both, it is! The tiny and lightning fast flying Blue-winged Teal with that distinctive white facial stripe, and the Green-winged Teal with that absolutely remarkable looking green mask. So… take THAT, every teacher I had in grade school, it is good to space out sometimes!Green-winged Teal0304
