December 3rd and the last patches of open water are covered with the late southern flyers - as we brace for the winter months It was great to find these green wing teal offering an opportunity to capture 4k video in a small piece of open water about 40 yards around. 

I had the opportunity to watch them for a couple hours as the stumbled around trying to keep their feet under them as they waddled around on ice trying to avoid the large groups of northern shovelers in their usual feeding frenzy
