She’s lovely too 😉

By Kaxxie
Hi everyone

I always used to think the female Mandarins were boring but when you look at them closely they are gorgeous. There were two pairs on the pond that day. They all came over to see if we were having lunch…we weren’t but I did have my suet pellets with me. 😉
They were literally right by my feet.

Thank you all so much for your votes and kind comments on my male Mandarin Duck and to Alan (af1) and Debs (frogs123) for their precious UAs. I really appreciate you all. Looking forward to seeing your Mandarin images Len.

Thank you for your best wishes for the physio. Apparently I have arthritis, bursitis and a 1cm muscle tear in my shoulder. I don’t do things by half! 😱 He was very impressed when I showed him how high I can now lift my arm as it would barely move last time I saw him. He said from reading the MRI report he’d send me straight for surgery but looking at the improvement through exercise he thinks we should persevere with exercises. I’m seeing the Trauma and Orthopaedic team on Monday so fingers crossed they are of the same opinion. If only I had moved the dust sheet off the floor. I’d rather have a dirty carpet than this shoulder injury!!!

Take care everyone

Much more understated and subtle - but still wonderful make-up.

Great capture of these posers, they probably have it down to fine art now. Get used to people, approach them, and the chances are they will get fed!
Keep up the good work, with exercises, and hopefully on the mend soon, Karen.

I wonder why.

Your injury sounds so painful Karen 😣, keep up with the physio.
