|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This Mandarin Duck was one of a group of about 15 that were living at the Martin Mere Wildfowl Trust, near Southport, Lancashire.|
It would be difficult to think of any more colourful bird that can be found.
These birds are just absolutely stunning to look at.
This is a male of the species and as with most bird species the female is a little less spectacular in her plumage.
The Martin Mere Wetlands are a fantastic place to visit and I go there as often as I can make the journey, usually about twice a year.

Gorgeous creature. I cannot quite determine the point of focus, however. Seems a bit fuzzy all over. Is this due to low res. photo and then digital enlargement? Or from resizing for upload? Or perhaps, a bit too much movement from the bird itself? It is a stunning bird, as you say. Thanks for sharing!
