Hello dear friends!
Another little duck requiring its ID. Please , who knows it name ?
Photo taken in our little zoo last month.
Hope you like it!
All my love,
PS: this little duck was identified by Peter van Zoest( PeterZ) as Brazilian Teal ( Amazonetta Brasiliensis).Many thanks Peter !

The Brazilian Teal is a resident of freshwater marshes, lakes and ponds from Colombia and Venezuela south to northern Argentina and Uruguay. A small grayish brown duck, the Brazilian Teal has red legs and the male has a red bill as well. Brazilian Teal nests on mounds of plant matter surrounded by water or occasionally in tree hollows. Most Brazilian Teal are sedentary, but individuals of the southern subspecies ipecutiri have been reported north to Venezuela.Wikipedia

Hello Ana,
This is a Brazilian Teal, amazonetta brasiliensis. Very nice photo in great sharpness and details. Beautiful natural colours.
Sorry I don't have anymore smiles to give.

Olá Ana,
ISO 400, 1/500s, luz suficiente e foco perfeito! ... A mágica está feita! ... Vocé está cada vez mais dominando melhor a câmera! ... Parabéns! O nível de luz e texturas são muito boas. Meu apreço especial para o POV eo contato eloqüente com o olho do pato. Saudações! Obrigado por compartilhar!

ana, great shot of this teal. Wonderful job. Bill

Before my execution, let me start with my wholehearted ...Thank you dear aNa for the kind wishes and for the sarcastic video/song .... how cruel but true words in this clip! That's what we need a bit more in life ...humor, despite the reality !Thank you!
Well, let me express somehow my disappointment in this capture however. Seems that the little Brazilian Teal has been capture in the most boring pose imaginable ...agree ;), although the specie is well presented, I think that some larger portion of creativity was needed here! Well, maybe the duck was resting here and you did not want to disturb its peace, but probably a piece of bread ( or large stone ;))could revive that boring pose ...
Good use of fast shutter speed, this really preventing camera shake, good use of higher ISO in this cloudy day too I think! Learn how to use your camera in Aperture priority mode, this could give you greater control over the depth of field ...as you can see even the bright dropping in the background was captured in perfect focus! Is that necessary? :)
P.S. The full green smile is for the birthday wish ..the image does not deserve such a price my dear aNa ...in my opinion of course ! kkk kkkkkk
