Hi everyone

This was taken last year in Richmond Park at the Isabella Plantation. We sat down to watch the wildlife when this Mandarin Duck came up to us hoping for food. He came so close I could have reached down and stroked him.

Thank you all for your votes and kind comments on yesterday’s set. I really appreciate you all.

It’s another dull, dismal, wet day today. I’m off to the hospital physio today….ouch! 😱

Take care

Great details, Karen, he must have just come out of the water to visit you, as he still has a high watermark on him.
