Hello Septimiu
I love these birds - so attractive - and they look so unique.
This is a nicely composed portrait, good colourful details and the OOF female in the background looks great

Ciao Nemes,
bellissimo ritratto di maschio di anatra mandarina, catturata con buona definizione, mi piace molto la composizione con la femmina sfocata che fa da BG, molto belli e naturali i colori.

Beautiful portrait of this cute duck, Nemes.
I like the rich and saturated colours on its head and neck.
Thanks for sharing it and all the best.
