Hello Jiri,
The Mandarin Duck is one of my all time favorite birds with their gorgeous plumages and unique features. A nice shot of this particular bird which seems to be enjoying the sunshine. I like the back lighting effect on it's wing feathers, very pretty. Focus is sharp and exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

Very artistic creation from your archives, Jiri.
The colours on the bird are just fabulous.

hallo Jiri
