I took this photo of a sleeping blue-winged teal at Merritt Island last March from an observation deck. Obviously, the reflection of the foliage surrounding the pond is what makes the photo interesting. The shame is that I didn't properly expose the duck itself. The iridescent plumage and reflective qualities of the underbelly can make this a challenge. The first photo is the cropped version; the second is the photo's original frame. The white reflections in the upper right corner are of a snowy egret foraging along the banks of the pond. When viewed at its original size, you can see the erget's yellow lores in the reflection and some feather detail.
