Good Day to you all at ePz

The insomnia bug has bit me again, can't sleep, but hey ho.

Thank you all so very much for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays up load "Brooding".

Todays image showing a male Teal was captured whilst out and about at a local park not far from my home. He was a little edgy so I am quite chuffed with this image.

I hope that you have a wonderful day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Super shot of this very handsome bird; well taken, old chap.
I also like the 'pool of reflections' and it's what really makes this image special.

A superb shot of this teal drake, the details and colours in the plumage are exceedingly good. I'm not surprised he was a bit edgy, he must have caught sight of your long lens and thought it was a gun and you were coming to shoot him!Wink
