Sometimes while you are out on photo safari you get to see something unusual. The picture above shows a large flock of Blue-winged Teal dabbling in a shallow water marsh. The water is clear enough here to show the green of the water plants the ducks are seeking. At first glance this photo appears to have just Blue-winged Teal. Can you spot what is unusual about this flock?
The second image is an enlargement of something interesting inside the first photo. It shows a male Wood Duck (Aix sponsa, family Anatidae, subfamily Cairinini) joining his cousins for breakfast. Somedays, you get an extra on the set who outshines the stars!
