CommentDon't often see these so grabbed a shot despite needing to crop quite a bit. The Government Dam in Coolamon has many waterbirds on it but they are very shy and not used to human presence at all. I noted a Hide frame waiting installation there so hopefully that will be in place soon. Well worth a visit if you are in the Riverina. Nice light and the plumes are well defined as the signature look of this handsome Duck. Grey Teal presence gives the subject Duck some nice loose framing and focus.
