I think the Mandarin and wood duck are two of our prettiest ducks.
I like how the neck plumage is fluffed in the shot.
Wonderful colors in this fine capture.

A lovely shot and proudly posing for you Smile
He won't have needed to have escaped from anywhere, as I think they're native British ducks - certainly they're common in the park near where my parents live and you can often see several pairs together (the females are nowhere near as colourful)
