Blue-winged Teal and Clouds

A couple of interesting sightings this evening. First off, it is nice to see more and more Blue-winged Teal coming into the area. They are now even on another pond a few blocks away. But at the main pond I happened to get a shot of one of the ducks displaying their namesake wings.

The sun was setting but there were storms all around the Orlando region. I had to pick up the kids from practice and as we pulled up to the house I looked skyward. Mammatus!

Mammatus Clouds

Mammatus Clouds are formed when cold air over a cloud deck drops through and forms 'breast clouds' on the underside of that cloud deck. They are more common up North so it is always nice to see them in Central Florida.

Always someting interesting if you just look around!
