There are small numbers of Teals, mostly Blue-winged, at the pond and there is plenty of duck weed to keep them fed. This pair decided to try the other end of the pond and took a low flight to get there.

You really caught his blue wing perfectly Ellen – great job!
They stand out so beautifully against the dark coloured water.
Thanks, Belinda! It’s amazing how dark that water looks in spots where there is no duckweed. It really is prettier.
Awesome capture of the flash of blue, Ellen. This is one duck that has eluded me around the mid-Atlantic. Maybe I’ll get lucky in SC. 🙂
Thanks, Donna! I hope you do. We haven’t seen many ducks locally of any kind,
