I took this picture during a visit to the Wildlife World Zoo in Phoenix. These little fellas are so friendly, I love water birds, they're my favorites.

The Ringed Teal (Callonetta leucophrys) is a small duck of South American forests.The Ringed Teal breeds in north-west Argentina and Paraguay, also occurring in Bolivia, Brazil and Uruguay. Their habitats include tropical, swampy forests and marshy clearings in well-wooded lowlands, as well as secluded pools and small streams.

Hello Everton, my dear friend,
today, we are neighbour, good meeting for me:)
Ringed Teal is very beautiful duck species. You captured it with a nice shot. Focus, POV, lighting and composition very nice. also eyes contact. Thanks for sharing it with good notes. well done

Hi Everton,
that duck sure looks like a handsome species and the point of view works well for this photo.The things about it that I see as a little off are the exposure and sharpness but not so much so.I have tried a workshop for this image to see what I could do to spruce it up some and I hope you like the difference.This type of duck is one I have never seen before now and I thank you for sharing it with us .
