I suspect that most of the people who have seen this photo have no idea just how rare and how special this bird is. . The fact that you are able to observe and photograph this species is astounding!

Blue-winged teal

Right place, right time...that's a fantastic wing spread to have captured!

It is amazing how much the topside plumage of a Blue-winged Teal resembles that of the Northern Shoveler. . Those two species, along with the Cinnamon Teal, have the most colorful topside wing plumage of all the North American ducks, in my opinion.

Great capture. Really brings out some colors which are often hidden.

These three species are in the same genus. It's still a bit surprising that they developed other very distinctive color differences but kept almost identical wing patterns.
