ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

Great photo. :)

William Kendall said...

This is a British bird, but any chance you can identify it?

Andrea Priebe said...

Luckily they only have to preen their real self and not their reflected self as well. That might be a bit exhausting. Lovely picture of the Blue Winged Teals. We get them here as they pass through, but haven't seen any stick around. I wonder what it is about Wisconsin that draws them there instead of staying here with us ... sad :( Nice pictures, Theresa ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Stephen Hayes said...

They're beautiful and they know it.

Robin Lamb said...

T, I think that's a full time job for ducks! Nice shot!

Kovács Miklós said...

Really lovely couple.

Karen S. said...

I believe I heard their sweet quack. life is so good, oh yes it is!

Farm Girl said...

Lovely ducks and lovely reflections.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The ripples look like you caught them just after a dive or two ... no wonder they needed to preen their feathers!

Our photos said...

Lovely couple !

Kate said...

Preening obvious is not confined to the human species.

Pom Pom said...

They are so beautiful! I can hardly stand it! I want them to live in my garden.

Red said...

Nice one. Teal are very attractive birds.

Karen Schurr said...

What a pretty sight. Love that you give us the names of the birds you spotlight. Great shots, Theresa.

i wonder if they're doing some 'before' or 'after' preening, if you know what i mean. never mind.
