This week’s photo is of a sleeping green-winged teal, as he floated around a local pond along the bay. The green-winged teal is one of the many duck species that winter here, extending the color palette from the ubiquitous mallard. I liked this photo because of its simplicity, and the vivid colors reflected in the water.
Many days I am up at dawn photographing, just for moments like this. Not only is the light warm and slanting in low across the horizon, but water tends to be still and glassy, offering many opportunities for great reflections.
