Witnessing Green-winged Teals' courtship

Such a great weather today!

Sky-watch of the day.

At the Terra Nova observation deck, I saw the Green-winged Teals performing their courtship rituals.
I took photos only (with FZ18). And now that I think about it, I should had taken a video like this one. Pretty neat!

Then I slowly arrived at the Sharing Farm - where I took pictures of the colorful flowers.

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom now. See the insects enjoying the nectar?

The kit lens take pretty decent images.

Passing through the gardens, I spooked the pheasant and it flew away for an adjacent field. Far away, there was a group of Snow Geese ahead. And surrounding that area was three bird-of-preys.

Short-eared Owl.

Northern Harrier.

Red-tailed Hawk (I believe so).

Snow Goose (Chen caerulescens)

Sunset, time to go home.
