I always thought teal looked best at a full bank with their wings straight up and down or preening.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Pull out some of your old hunting magazines and find pictures that have poses you like-any species will work and have your taxidermist do the rest. A good taxidermist will have some work or books in his shop to help you decide.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie

I'm getting mine done in a preening pose. The taxidermist said with that green flash on the side of the head preening that green blaze on the wing - it would be beatiful.
I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
