A very nice and colorful duck Siegfried.
Well done.
Thanks for sharing.


Hello Siegfried,

I'm not sure whether it's Mandarin Duck's natural habitat or not. But read they were "Introduced Resident".
Quite well captured with excellent different color tone. Like the way you shown us its reflection.
Thanks for sharing,

An excellent capture well focussed with good POV and colours.
