MANDARIN

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thanks for all your most appreciated comments & votes on yesterdays' up-load.

Took this image of a beautiful manadarin duck on the lake late yesterday afternoon, the colour of the water was amazing reflecting from the beautiful golden trees. It's been some years since I've seen a Mandarin here, he was the only one, with a bit of luck they are coming back, they are always a joy to see and watch, the colours on them are unbelieveable.

Hope you all have a good day !

Chris
