Handsome bird. I used to see them every winter in NW Florida, but it’s been a while. Good detail, right down to the pupil in the eye.
 
Beautifully lit and well detailed, and such pretty water too.

Hi Gerry, Thank you for your compliment on my photo. I love the teals, and the male BWTE is one of my favorites. I was very happy to get this photo. Have the blue-winged teals stopped migrating through NW Florida? I have noticed that migration patterns have changed in my area for some of the other birds in the last several years.
