This nice looking Duck was posted on ebird. We were tied up but arrived in time and clicked a few shots before it flew away for the night.

This is a wonderful image of one of my favorite ducks. I don't regularly photograph ducks but this is a really great looking preening image which shows off it varying patterns and colors beautifully. Glad you were able to get away and get this Teal in such great light.

Should click for terrific detail.

Really a stunning capture this one because it displays all the wonderful colors and textures of the feathers enveloped in such golden light. I love it!
