This photo I took day before I leave Germany.

The Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata), or just Mandarin, is a medium-sized perching duck, closely related to the North American Wood Duck. It is 41-49 cm long with a 65-75 cm wingspan.

Superb portrait image Biswarup.
Detail is wonderful, pin sharp, shows every feather. Looks as if he is watching you out the corner of his eye, great pose.

Hi Biswa,
Great portrait shot of this beautiful duck. Very nice focus on the eyes. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Biswarup,
Nice soft lighting has displayed the plumage well on this duck really well. The plumage is sharply shown and very interesting to look at, good composition,

Great capture with wonderful detail. It's a bit dark though - so I posted it in the workshop, to see what can be done to lighten it up - hope you like it!
