Green-winged Teal by Sam Timm
Fred's Anecdotal Note
A family of curious badgers poke their heads out of their pond-side burrow in this hand-painted cachet. Commanding the attention of the furry trio is a greenwingcd teal arising from the water. In the background, a cultivated hillside and a rustic barn attest to the pcaccful setting of the Wisconsin farm that the badgers call home. Soon, the visiting teal will be gone and the inquisitive three-some will withdraw to the dark security of their earthen home.
