Three studies of the beautiful male Mandarin.
These ducks always remind me of the Chinese Emperor's golden silken robes of old.
I hope you like these, best viewed large for the detail.
Many thanks for all the C&C's and have a good weekend.
Steve.

Fantastic detail and colours, for me it has to be V1, though all beautifully taken.
