Blue-Winged Teal by Phillip Crowe
Fred's Anecdotal Note
1992 NORTH DAKOTA
With clustered cattails going to seed near-by, a blue-winged teal methodically cleans and grooms his wing feathers. Note the delicate blue coloring of his head feathers in this hand-painted MILFORD. A swirling ripple effect on the water signifies the constant movement as the teal preens. The surface also picks up muted reflections from the duck and his immediate surroundings.
Numbers used were 141011 through 141260 except for 141190.
