A male Mandarin duck (Aix galericulata) taken at Arundel WWT yesterday and the first shot of one of these that I have been reasonably satisfied with. As an afterthought, have just uploaded a V2 with the bird cropped in (omitting the reflections) just to give an idea of the detail captured.
Had a wonderful day in the company of Ina (Gezina), Richard(Mossyoak), Alec (Alec1) and Ron(Maiwand) with his wife Betty and granddaughter Victoria, who is also an enthusiastic togger.
Thank you all so much for your great response to my Star Magnolia - really appreciated as always
