[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The beautiful Mandarin duck, I know that it is well represented on TN but I thought I would add my picture. This one liked being photographed I think, as he swam towards me and put on a display for about 5 minutes.
Photographed at the Wetland and Wildlife Centre in Arundel.

Wow! A good one, I love the colors and definition ! Great work !


nice photo, interesting pov.. have a look at mine, maybe they are family ;)

good work


It is so beautiful in fact. A great shot, so clear. Pretty colors.

So good, a nice share. I like the composition, looking at him from some upper place ( I hope you understand my bad englihs)

Very nice capture with an interesting pov Michael. I wish we had some of these ducks here in Denmark too. They are very beautiful with all the colours.

I like the look from above, gives a good view over all the beautiful colours. Good contract between the sharpness of the duck and the softness of the water.

Michael, These Mandarins must be the most colorful of the ducks..You've captured this color very well in this shot. Interesting POV. Great job!

This is not the greatest POV, but the excellent colors and sharpness make up for it.

Very well done and thanks for posting
