Category: Amateur
Photographer: Chris Reecer
Species: American Wigeon
Location: Trinity Park, Fort Worth, TX

Lucky for Reecer, Trinity Park, in his hometown of Fort Worth, hosts plenty of waterfowl in winter, wigeons included. He found this male taking a mid-morning nap one December day, and was drawn to its reflection in the mirror-like water.
