Everytime I see a Mandarin Duck I just can't believe my eyes. These ducks are so colorful! I shot this male in Plantaria Twisteden. Plantaria is a sort of birdpark. I just can't imagine that these birds also live in "real nature".

What a magnificent shot of this mandarin duck, Zeno.
You captured him in a most fantastic pose, very unusual.
It is hard to believe that these incredible ducks actually live in the wild.
They look like jewels that should be kept under glass.
Sharpness, exposure, colors are all superb.
TFS. : )

I still cannot believe there are birds out there that look like this! OMG where have i been!?
awesome picture Zeno.. colors, sharpness and details are FANTASTIC! I can even see the pattern on it's body (the light brown part at the bottom!) WOW!
