Description Here are two male Blue-winged Teals enjoying a beautiful day on Lake Avalon in Naples,FL. They have the white crescent shaped mark on base of the bill which the females do not. There is a blue wing patch that you usually only see in flight. They are one of the longest distance migrating ducks nesting as far north as Alaska. They arrive in Florida in August and leave in April or May.

I have always had an interest in photography & have been the guy with the camera at family events, etc. Now,that I have recently retired, I have the time to study & get serious with this wonderful craft. I am having a great time discovering & learning all the nuances of my newest camera, the Canon 7D. For most of my wildlife images I use the Canon Zoom Lens EF 100-400mm L series. My main interest is wildlife and nature photography, but I will also focus my attention on most any subject that moves me. In addition, I do enjoy manipulating images with Photoshop. I do hope you enjoy as much as I do the fine details of my photographic subjects!
