So I’ve heard that the Mandarin Duck is the most beautiful duck in the world…yup have to agree!!!! Came upon one hanging out with a gaggle of Canada Geese this past weekend at a pond in Irving, TX. What a site to see. He is quite small but OMG, what a presence!! I have to admit, I probably shot 500 images….now I have to decide which ones are the best and which to delete…..Being a hoarder by dna, that’s gonna be tough!
I initially spotted him under an oak tree…after reading more about them I discovered they like acorns…well that explains that.
This whole relationship with the Canada goose baffels me 🙂 Really can one more colorful fall for one more drab???
How about a staring contest?
what a wonderful start to 2016 Photography of Birds
